This commission percentage is paid annually for both new business and renewals.
Should there be an increase in the commission schedule we receive from your insurer, or any other material change that affects compensation arrangements, we will notify you. From time to time, we may receive an override on commission from an insurer in the form of a bonus, based on volume growth in a particular year. 
In order for us to maintain strong relationships with quality insurers, we work with each to provide the type of business they desire.  The insurers with an asterisk (*) noted above recognize our efforts through a Contingent Commission contract.  Payment of this Contingent Commission may depend on a combination of growth, profitability (loss ratio), volume, retention, and increased services that we provide on behalf of the Insurer.  Contingent Commission is not guaranteed.  For detailed information on Contingent Commission, please go to the individual company’s website.
From time to time, our companies may offer sales and incentive programs that we may or may not participate in.  This in no way will affect the way we conduct our business and we will continue to place our clients with the proper companies with the proper coverages

Steele Insurance Brokers Limited also wishes to declare that we do currently have a loan with Portage La Prairie Mutual Insurance Company that was used to expand our business.  We do not have any other financial links that could be considered a conflict of interest, such as direct or indirect ownership interest by an insurer or financial conglomerate, any other loan, credit facility or other financial relationship direct or indirect.            
Our disclosure commitments are made in the best interest of consumers.  We encourage you to also consult the commitments made by the insurance industry and individual companies by consulting their websites or other available information.
