Established in 1997, our core mission is to develop, distribute and underwrite Special Risk Life, Accident and Health products to provide solutions for client needs that cannot be fully satisfied in the regular market. We do not deal directly with consumers, but rather through licensed intermediaries – financial and insurance advisors, benefit consultants, and selected national account distributors across Canada.
Markel's operation in Canada, formerly known as Elliott Special Risks, has been in existence since 1966 and is highly respected for exceptional expertise and service.

The strength and specialist expertise of Markel International further improves the ability to assist brokers in solving their customer's needs, thanks to increased proficiencies, greater capacity and a range of new products.
