A large and lovable Newfoundland dog sits proudly with a smile.

Meet Johnson, Our Furriest Employee

Friendly, slobbery and larger-than-life, Johnson the Newfoundland dog treats his friends the same way we treat our customers. Johnson is enthusiastic, loyal, dependable, eager to please and always there to listen.

About Johnson Insurance

Just like our furry friend, Johnson Insurance originated in Newfoundland and Labrador. We opened our doors over 130 years ago and we’re still headquartered in St. Johns, Newfoundland to this very day.

So, what does all that experience mean for you? It means we have the understanding and expertise to help serve you better. As proud members of our communities and Intact Financial Corporation, we’re proud to work in the very communities we live in and happy to lend a helping hand to you, our neighbours.
