Our story: specialization and innovation

Mitchell Sandham is one of the oldest and largest independently owned insurance brokerages in Toronto. Our story began with the founding of Bick and Gollings Insurance Brokers in 1966 by Ronald Gollings, and in 1995, Peter S. Mitchell and Norm Sandham merged their companies to create Mitchell Sandham. 

Since our earliest days, Mitchell Sandham has been committed to providing innovative insurance products through a team of experienced and highly specialized insurance professionals. As an independent insurance broker, we represent all of the leading national and international insurance companies. Today, we have more than 50 people in three offices across the Greater Toronto Area to serve our clients.
