Who We Are

       My father started in the insurance industry in 1956, and in 1986 I followed in his footsteps. Now my son and son-in-law are involved. Our purpose has always been to provide protection to people and the property that is important to them.

- John Beal.

We are a family owned and operated insurance brokerage serving the needs of Calgary and area since 1991. "Personal service at competitive prices" is more than just a statement; it is how we do business every day. At John Beal Insurance we pride ourselves on building relationships with our clients, we get to know you and your needs, then find the insurance product to fit. Insurance is and always has been a people business, from the farmers of the prairies setting up mutual companies in the late 1800s to help mitigate losses of one through the whole community, to now. Each client has different needs and our job is to find out those needs and put together the best policy to meet these needs.

Insurance is a people business; it’s about people helping people. People are what I enjoy most about my job, getting to know and building trust with my clients. Insurance goes back a couple generations in my family with both my father and grandfather selling insurance. John Beal Insurance was started in 1991. In 2007 Ken and I agreed to purchase John Beal Insurance from my father and we have never looked back.


Currently, I hold my general level 3 license, life insurance license, and accident and sickness license. As well, I have obtained my CAIB (Canadian Accredited Insurance Broker) designation.

I am married with three kids, and my wife and I strive to live a healthy, active lifestyle. We enjoy spending time hiking, camping, skiing, and cycling. In fact, I ride my bike to the office all year long!
