About

A family business built one relationship at a time.

Ives Insurance Brokers is pleased to announce that Roth Nowak Insurance Brokers in Waterloo Ontario is now a Division of Ives Insurance Brokers.  This merger allows for Dennis Roth and Ed Nowak to begin transitioning to a well-deserved retirement after owning and operating their brokerage for 35 years. 

Roth Nowak opened in October 1983 and was established with strong family and community values providing honest insurance to local clients.  Ives Insurance Brokers also prides itself on similar principles.  Founded in 1966 in the small farming town of Essex, Ontario by Jerry Ives, the business was built around serving customers in a friendly, helpful and dependable manner.  Ives Insurance continues with this philosophy today under the leadership of son, Jeff Ives, President.

Today, with over 10,000 customers and offices across southwest Ontario and in Michigan, Jeff continues the tradition like his father, forging strong relationships with each and every customer simply by understanding their individual needs and ensuring they are provided with the best quality insurance products at reasonable and competitive rates.

Ives Insurance has a reputation for building relationships with our customers that last a lifetime; relationships that take customer service to a new level every day!
