Our History

Insurance Jack is a division of Petley-Hare Limited and we have been providing smart insurance options to families and businesses since 1922. Always believing in great service and strong relationships but most of all, we believe that insurance is about protecting people.

Like most companies, Petley-Hare started out small. In 1922, James Bickle founded the South Oshawa Insurance and Real Estate Company. In 1963, Jim Hare bought the firm, and Petley-Hare was born.

Jim’s son David took over the reins in 1976, and grew the company to a trusted brokerage that works with clients throughout Durham Region and continues to provide the excellent service James Bickle was known for almost 100 years ago.
