CANS Advantage Program

CANS Discount Insurance

Introducing a special home & auto discount insurance program exclusively for members of CANS.

Did you know?

If you are employed by a Construction Association of Nova Scotia (CANS) member company, you are uniquely qualified to access a discount personal insurance program.

What does this mean?

You are invited to take advantage of exclusive discounted rates and enhanced coverage on home, automobile, tenants and other personal insurance products exclusively from  a local, independent broker – Stanhope Simpson Insurance.

In addition to discounted rates, some of these benefits include:

  • Accident forgiveness program for your car
  • Multi-vehicle discounts
  • Guaranteed replacement cost coverage for your home
  • Multi-policy discounts
  • And more.

How do you take advantage of this CANS member benefit?

Call or email one of our CANS Personal Insurance Brokers for a (free) quotation today.  But first, to get the ball rolling, scroll down and download the CANS quote questionnaire(s) applicable to you.  These completed questionnaires will give us the necessary information to provide you and your family with a comprehensive personal insurance quote that balances protection against risk with premium savings.

Are you an owner or operator of a CANS member company?

If so, would you like our team to market this program to your staff? Contact us today and we will develop co-branded marketing material and/or organize initiatives (that are specifically tailored to meet the needs of your company) to spread awareness of this valuable benefit to the members of your organization.

”This program saved my family considerable money on our home and auto insurance – well over 30%.  And the switch to Stanhope Simpson was painless.  It is also comforting to know that my family’s insurance is now with a local, independent broker as opposed to a big bank.  I would highly recommend to any employee of a CANS member company to request a quote.” – CANS Member, Fall River, NS
”I just want to thank you again for your prompt, efficient and friendly service and for all the money you saved me. I’m just blown away that you could achieve that for me when I was paying so much to the “other place.” Your knowledge of insurance and ability to explain policy coverages in a simple and easy to understand manner provided me with the confidence that my home and auto insurance needs are more than adequately met. I will continue to recommend Stanhope Simpson Insurance to friends and family.” – Ronnie Moore, ITS Construction
