TD Insurance Home and Auto has announced that it will expand its Saint John Client Service Centre operation and will establish a new National Claims Response Centre that together is expected to create 200 new jobs.

The provincial government will provide TD Insurance Home and Auto with a forgivable loan of C$5,600 for each of the 200 jobs created at its operations in Saint John. The Client Service Centre currently employs more than 200 people.

Alain Thibault, president of TD Insurance, said: We’re both proud and excited to be expanding our business in New Brunswick. TD is ‘Canada’s most comfortable bank’ and one of the strongest brands in the country – this resonates in our insurance business too; people feel comfortable talking to TD about their insurance needs as we prepare our customers to handle ‘the accidents of life’.

Shawn Graham, premier of New Brunswick, said: Today’s announcement is the result of a new aggressive investment strategy, a hands-on approach from our government and the development of a strong partnership with TD. I am very pleased that TD has once again chosen New Brunswick for its expansion.
