About Us

C. M. Steele Insurance Brokers was founded in 1898 by Omer L. Steele.  Working from his home, Omer sold fire insurance on houses and boiler insurance on tug boats operating on the Welland Canal.

In 1940, Charles Steele took over the business from his Uncle Omer.  Shortly after, Charles joined the RCAF, serving our country until 1945.  In his absence, Charles’ father received special dispensation to deliver renewals, maintaining the business in Charles’ absence.  Upon Chuck’s return, he actively sold and serviced insurance in Port Colborne and surrounding areas until his retirement. Sadly, Charles M. Steele passed away in 2016 at the age of 99.  Charles’ dedication and strength of character will always be remembered.

After completing his studies, William Steele, Charles’ son joined the business in 1976.  Now Mack Steele works alongside, mentored by his father Bill as the family tradition continues on.

Many things have changed over the years, from the products and services offered to technology effecting the way we do business.  What hasn’t changed is our dedication, placing our commitment to our customers first and foremost.
