L’expertise. À votre service.

L’histoire de PRL a commencé en 1959, lorsque Bob Purves a fondé Robert Purves Limited, à Toronto. En 1979, son fils Rob Purves lui succède à titre de président du conseil d’administration, rôle qu’il occupe encore aujourd’hui. En 2003, Peter Redmond devient associé à part entière et l’entreprise prend le nom de Purves Redmond Limited. Sous sa présidence, PRL a étendu ses activités partout au Canada en offrant des régimes d’avantages sociaux collectifs et des services de planification de la retraite.

Au fil des ans, le pays s’est développé et PRL en a suivi le rythme et est devenu l’une des principales sociétés indépendantes de consultation en assurance et de courtage au Canada.

En activité depuis plus d’un demi-siècle, nous avons collaboré avec des entreprises de tous les principaux secteurs d’activité au Canada – mines, énergie, gestion des déchets, transport, construction, fabrication, vente au détail, etc. – et à des projets internationaux par l’intermédiaire de nos réseaux exclusifs de collaborateurs à l’étranger. Nous nous sommes engagés à offrir le meilleur service qui soit à tous nos clients – entreprises ou particulier, peu importe leur taille – et de continuer à mettre à leur disposition l’expertise qui fait notre renommée depuis des décennies.
