Who we are

Sonnet is Canada’s first fully online home and auto insurance company. We set out to change how Canadians feel about insurance and provide an easy, transparent and customized way to buy it. We’re a wholly-owned subsidiary of Definity Financial Corporation. Definity’s family of companies also includes Petline Insurance, Family Insurance Solutions, and Economical Insurance - a leading Canadian property and casualty insurer that issued its first policy in 1871.

We’re also ideas people who imagine bigger and better things, inspiring us to take chances and think innovatively. But it’s our employees who are the reason we’ve come as far as we have, and the reason we’ll go much further still. Our values are clear and simple: we focus on our customers first, we bring our best and we’re stronger together. 

Here's what Mary has to say:

"It's easy to do great work when you truly love what you do! Working at Sonnet has allowed me to grow my career in ways that I never thought possible. My coworkers push me to take on new and challenging opportunities daily - every hour is as diverse as every day! It’s so rewarding working for a company that truly cares for its employees and their growth."
