Formed in 1945 after The Saskatchewan Government Insurance Act was passed in 1944, Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) has a long history in Canada.
Two separate operations now exist, these being the Saskatchewan Auto Fund and SGI Canada. Operating as the compulsory auto insurance program, the Saskatchewan Auto Fund includes driver licensing, vehicle registration and safety programs.
SGI offers its products for home, farm, business and extended automobile coverage through the property and casualty insurance division SGI Canada and its subsidiaries. Products outside Saskatchewan are distributed by SGI Canada Insurance Services Ltd., and the Coachman Insurance Company in Ontario.
These insurance choices are distributed through a system of nearly 500 independent insurance brokers in Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario.
The SGI Canada headquarters is in Regina and the firm works alongside 400 motor license issuers. Additional SGI Canada offices are in Edmonton, Winnipeg and Toronto. SGI Canada employs more than 2,000 people.
