President’s Message

Trust in a Family

From our humble beginnings 50 years ago, our family has been protecting the interests of Canadians; and for Oegema Nicholson, the concept of “family” plays a major role in how we operate. In effect it’s who we are and how we approach everything we do. Our team of “Oegemas” remains hands-on staff participants in our business, together with our extended family –a host of learned and astute insurance service personnel. We are proud of the fact that over the years Oegema Nicholson has grown into one of the most acclaimed, trusted, and recognizable insurance brokerage firms in the National Capital Region.

That Believes in Relationships

We have had the good fortune to forge valuable relationships with several of the nation’s most respected insurance companies over the years, relationships that have allowed us to develop competitive, leading edge insurance programs. Flexed and tailored to individual client needs, at Oegema Nicholson we provide a complete and comprehensive spectrum of insurance products and services.

Leadership, Evolution, Revolution

When it comes to our broad base of clients, our attention, focus, and availability remains even and equal across the board. Whether we are insuring a large corporation with insurance services that address both company and employee programs, developing a series of financial programs, insuring a homeowner with home insurance, providing an individual vehicle owner with car insurance, and so much more, our people are riveted to the task at hand – every one of us, regardless of title and position within our company – are there to provide responsive and personal care.

And the Value Inherent to Independence and Uncompromising Objectivity

Flexibility and adaptability are hallmarks of our company, and adhering to our strategy of steadfast independence allows us to remain unequivocally objective in the insurance solutions we build for our clients. For while we value and respect the insurance firms we work with, we will forever be driven by one master – our clients – for it is the client that we represent first and foremost. Guided by these foundational pillars, whatever your insurance need, we’ll build the right solution for you for many years to come. – Bart Oegema, President

"One call to Oegema, Nicholson Associates is all it took. After our basement flooded, within a day or two they had a crew cleaning everything up, taking down the drywall and itemizing everything to be cleaned, thrown out or restored. They had everything in place for us in a timely manner and were extremely patient with me as they talked me through the process and waited for me to make decisions."
J-Jennifer Parks, Stittsville, Ontario
"I’ve been dealing with ONA for over 20 years with my personal insurance, as well as our commercial insurance, and I know I can rely on them for great customer service, and prompt responses. I feel confident not only referring them to my employees, but to our customers as well."
