Serving our Community and way beyond!

Fort Macleod Agencies is proud to provide the people of the Fort Macleod area with their insurance and registry needs. It turns out, they are so happy with our service that they tell their friends about us, including those who dont even live in our community.

In fact, this word-of-mouth advertising is one of the reasons our business is going so strongly. Our happy clients talk about us to their friends all over the province. New customers from bigger cities come to us because we offer the same scope of services they can get anywhere. What they can't seem to find anywhere else is our unique combination of expertise and small town, friendly service.

The truth is, we're large enough to provide most clients with all of their insurance needs, no matter where they live in Alberta. What sets us above the rest is that we're small enough to honestly say we remember a person and their needs long after their first call to us. Unlike most "big city" agencies, when our customers call, they're greeted by the same friendly voice every time.

So even if you live far away from Fort Macleod, we can still help you with your insurance needs. You won't even have to come into our office, although you'd certainly be welcome if you ever did.


Our Primary Focus

We make it our daily business to provide each and every one of our clients with their insurance and motor vehicle needs. We do this with exceptional customer service and at a reasonable price. We'll always do what's best for our customers, whether they need to get insurance, renew their driver's license or file a claim.


Our Mission

It has been and always will be our goal to make someone a customer for life. Every brokerage in Alberta offers similar coverage. We distinguish ourselves from the rest by providing excellent service straight across the board.


Our Strength

In two words – our staff. They are simply outstanding. The fact that we have very little turn-over speaks to the fact that FMA is just a great place to be for customers and staff alike. We concentrate on making our people happy, providing them with a pleasant and efficient work place. You'll get to experience that every time you call or visit our office.


Our Commitment to Service

Our team takes pride in offering outstanding service that takes people a bit by surprise. We know every customer's name and we listen to what they need. We provide them with the products and services that will protect them. And if something ever happens, we are right there, when it matters. Our customers know they can count on that and on us.


Our History

Fort Macleod Agencies dates back to the 1930's when Peter McTavish first opened its doors. It remained a family business until 1982, when Trevor Norlin purchased the company.

In the mid-1990's, Trevor's son Scott and Karen Robson became part of the ownership team. In 2002, Scott became the majority shareholder. In 2003, we purchased Chilton Insurance and merged two companies into one, enabling us to offer expanded service to our valued customers.

Fort Macleod Agencies had been located in the same building since the 1930's. Our growing business required more space, so we moved to our current location in 1989. As our customers needed more from us, our business continued to grow. To accommodate this, we completed major renovations to our offices in 2006, allowing us more space to meet the needs of our clients.


Who we are Today

Our hardworking team has grown to 11 and we are able to provide ALL classes of General Insurance, representing the top two largest companies in Alberta. We've also become an accredited service agent for Service Alberta, which means we can provide all Alberta Registries services as well as Level 1 corporate Registries.
