The story of Nesika has roots on both the East and West Coasts of Canada, dating back to 1973 when Amirault, Haynes, and Associates was established in Nova Scotia. Originally, they only sold life insurance and related products to fishermen and their families. In 1978, Fairway Insurance Services Inc. was incorporated to sell marine insurance due to client demand. Over the years to come, they branched out into Commercial and Personal lines to further satisfy the needs of their clientele.
Nesika was started by the Native Brotherhood of British Columbia to provide insurance to aboriginal fishermen and their vessels. In 2008, as the need for a First Nations insurance broker decreased, the company was sold to Fairway Insurance Services Inc. At this time, Nesika had been in operation writing only commercial fishing vessels for twenty years.
Together, Nesika and Fairway insure over 3,000 vessels on both coasts of Canada. Together, we have been providing our clients with quality service for over 40 years. We are proud to be a Canadian based and family-owned and operated brokerage.
