About Us

In the insurance world, success is built on a solid foundation of customer service. When that foundation is created by the coming together of two well respected companies with service as their shared focus, the customer is the greatest beneficiary.

Hope-Kallio Insurance Brokers founded in 1971, owned by Bill Hope joined in partnership with Harder & Company Insurance Brokers founded in 1954 by Erwin Harder and owned by David Harder to become Hope & Harder Insurance Brokers Inc. in 1987. Since that time, we have opened three additional offices in the Niagara area to better serve our clients.

Long-time Niagara residents, David Harder and Bill Hope not only share an in-depth understanding of the needs of local residents and businesses, but also a dedication to working closely with every client to ensure that proper coverage is recommended and claims are handled promptly.

Today Hope & Harder employs twenty-one staff members, including five who are dedicated to commercial business only. The partnership is proud of its many long-term client relationships, some of whom were originally secured more than 40 years ago. In order to offer full service across Niagara, Hope & Harder Insurance now operates in four locations – St. Catharines, Virgil, Thorold and Crystal Beach.

We are dedicated to providing you with excellent customer service for your personal and commercial insurance needs and we will arrange the best possible option available with our many insurance partners. In addition to a full range of personal and corporate insurance products, Hope & Harder Insurance offers its clients access to unique programs for special insurance needs. We currently insure twenty-five prominent local Wineries and over one hundred Bed & Breakfasts through our company.
