Specialty Services


Environmental surety is difficult to place. It requires a broker who has a complete understanding of the financial risks associated with environmental businesses. How the risk is presented is what determines the outcome. HUB's Ontario Surety Team is the best in Canada at providing environmental surety solutions.

Contract Analysis

Contractual relationships between contractors, subcontractors, developers and property owners may leave a contractor open for unforeseen liability. HUB's Ontario Environmental Practice provides expert contract analysis to clarify obligations and minimize damages, delays and increased costs resulting from:

  • unplanned situations such as weather, regulatory changes, building codes, or workers' strikes;
  • unknown variables like subsurface site conditions or structural conditions; and
  • the difficulty of planning and managing a wide variety of disciplines, skills and materials.

By identifying issues we assist our clients to improve their contracts.

International Expertise and Service

HUB's Ontario Environmental Practice works with several remediation contractors working in Canada, the U.S. and South America. We understand the risks associated with coordinating local regulatory requirements with admitted insurance requirements. Through HUB International's U.S and Latin American offices as well as our broker partners in the Worldwide Broker Network (WBN), we provide seamless, multi-line service extending to every major centre in the world.
