About Us


Since 1931, our family brokerage has specialized in personal attention.  We know that every insurance situation is different, so we take the necessary time and care with each individual.  You’re not just a number, you’re a person! And we aren’t robots, we answer our phones, get back to you as soon as we can, and provide you with sound insurance advice and plenty of payment options.  Get to know us, and we might even share a laugh together.

1931

G.S. Dalrymple operated a small insurance agency from his residence in Ayr, Ontario, establishing Dalrymple Insurance.

1942

G.S. Dalrymple completed the sale of a portion of his business in the Paris area to Murray Burns who established Burns Insurance Service.

1968

John S. Brown (Jack) became one of the shareholders of the corporation and as other shareholders retired changes in ownership were made and we became a family business.

1998

The purchase of Burns Insurance Service from Murray’s sons, Bill and Bob Burns, was completed and we established an office in Paris, Ontario. The business has come full circle since 1942.

2016

The addition of Perrin Insurance Brokers Ltd in Simcoe and Goderich Insurance extends our area of operations. The Dalrymple-Burns Insurance circle of connectivity is now reflected in our new name dbi Brokers Ltd.

Sponsorship

We happily live in the Ontario communities that we do business in, and we have always taken strides to be a part of the community. We are proud to give back because with out the support of our family, friends, and neighbours, we wouldn't be the company that we have grown to be.
