Westland and Globalex story

From humble beginnings in 1980 as a single family-owned brokerage in Ladner, BC, Westland has grown to become the largest independent, Canadian-owned brokerage in the country. Since then, we’re proud to have grown to a team of over 2,500 employees and over 250 locations coast-to-coast.

As Westland has expanded across the country, we have always maintained our focus on our people, our clients and our communities.

While Westland has a strong national brand, it also has a strong Anglophone connotation. Quebec has a unique culture in Canada and by having a dedicated brand for the region, we can better address the specific preferences of our Quebec clients. The Globalex brand represents professionalism, expertise and dedication to meeting the local and global needs of our clients


At Globalex, we always go above and beyond to connect clients with the best coverage for them. From personal insurance to commercial insurance, our expert advisors do the work to make recommendations that fit our clients’ lives. Plus, our large network of insurers means they always get great rates and options. We work hard to provide Quebecers with coverage that goes further.
