The Standard Insurance opens Fort Frances branch office


The Standard Insurance has announced the opening of a new location in Fort Frances; the office opened its doors on November 15.

“We are excited to serve the Fort Frances/Rainy River area in Home, Auto, Business and Life insurance and financial planning solutions including Disability, Group Benefits and RRSPs,” says a release from the company.

The Standard has been locally owned and based in Northwestern Ontario for over 125 years.

“Fort Frances has always been one of our Northwestern Ontario community neighbours,” the company said “We are now proud to have a physical presence in the area.”

The Fort Frances Branch Manager is Kasey Beaushene, she has called Northwestern Ontario home for 18 years. As a resident of Fort Frances, she worked over a decade in the area’s tourism industry before transitioning to insurance. The company says Beaushene is ready to provide great service to the Fort Frances/Rainy River area.

Beaushene says that despite the fact there were already two brokers in Fort Frances, competition can help everyone.

“I think there’s a little lack of customer service,” Beaushene said. “I think some healthy competition is good.”

“With our expanding footprint, the residents of Fort Frances and Rainy River have another option to choose for their insurance needs,” the company said. “They will get same-day-call-backs, and benefit from rock-solid, face to face advice from local insurance experts.”

Peace of mind is never more accessible than with Northwestern Ontario’s insurance specialists, the release said.

“The Standard brings the customer service aspect, we bring the coverages that you’re looking for and we’re really fighting for you and wanting to make sure that your possessions, your home, your auto, that they’re covered adequately,” Beaushene said. “We’re fighting for you. And again, top notch service and we’re local.”
