I first met Steve Eastwood about 8 years ago at a time when I had discovered that my, then, health insurance company had not been supplying the out-of-province insurance for which I had been paying. Steve was extremely helpful in getting me set up with new health insurance both inside and outside the province and has continued to be helpful throughout the period since that time. He has made constructive suggestions about possible changes as well as alternative ways to handle the financial aspects as situations are updated. I would be pleased to recommend Steve to anyone who was looking for someone to help them with their health insurance knowing that they would be pleased with the outcome.

Son of Canadian Visitor From India

My father came for a visit from India. While he was here he had some medical issues which resulted in 3 medical claims with his Visitors To Canada policy. The first claim was paid, one was partially paid and the other was declined. They were all valid claims. Stephen Eastwood worked on our behalf. Although it took 3 months, we got the claims paid. I am very much thankful to Stephen for his friendly behavior, his guidance whenever required and I will surely recommend him to my colleagues and friends whenever they require insurance.

Satisfied Friend & Client

Stephen Eastwood has been arranging the Travel Health Insurance for my wife and I for eight years and he has been able to customize policies each year to meet our various medical conditions whereas all other agencies declined coverage because of certain pre-existing conditions. He was professional in researching and exploring every possible market to provide coverage for annual travel and for a four month vacation each year. My wife and I are now 83 and 78 years of age respectively and Stephen’s professionalism and empathy for our needs enabled us to continue enjoying annual leisure trips. I recommend him very highly for treating us like good friends and family and not clients alone.

Our Story

Insurance247.ca began out of a passion to serve people and help them make qualified decisions for purchasing travel insurance and disability insurance arising from my own personal experiences over a number of years. These experiences enabled me to see a different perspective for the need of specialized insurances. I have been a licensed broker for the past 15 years gaining exponential knowledge in the areas of travel insurance, health insurance and life and disability insurance and group insurance. During that time I have gained considerable knowledge in the field of long term care and critical illness insurance. Over the course of these years I have developed relationships with many excellent insurance brokers. We work together to provide you the best insurance products with combined knowledge.
