As one of the first brokers to underwrite cannabis business in Canada, we remain committed to providing innovative, tailored solutions to this industry and community through our dedicated practice team.

Exposure Summary

Recognizing that the legalization of marijuana was imminent, Jones Brown were one of the first brokers in Canada to assist the medical cannabis industry with their brokering and risk management needs. Having now advised this industry since 2013, we recognize that our nimble and creative style has been perfectly aligned to support the growth of the industry and our clients. We have a broad range of clients for whom we balance the sophistication of their risk with a scarcity of insurer capital. We understand this business deeply from our work in bringing companies through an IPO, their licensing stages, providing specialized crop coverage, handling facilities from construction through production, and structuring M&A insurance.

We leverage our experience in insuring entrepreneurs, public companies, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and agri-business to bring the best advice and risk management practices to our clients to protect both their investment and most importantly their clients from harm.
