Rogers McLean Shaw Merges with Acera Insurance

Rogers McLean Shaw Ltd. is pleased to announce it has merged operations with Acera Insurance Services Ltd.

As part of this transaction, Rogers McLean Shaw will fully transition to become Acera Insurance. The two organizations first formally partnered in 2020, when Rogers Insurance — one of the founding firms of Acera Insurance — purchased a significant minority interest in Rogers McLean Shaw.

“Expanding our partnership to fully amalgamate with Acera Insurance is extremely beneficial to our clients as it allows us to provide greater choice and competitive solutions for all their insurance needs.” – Doug Laird, President of Rogers McLean Shaw

“With this merger, Edmonton maintains a strong, local and wholly independent brokerage that excels at providing impartial and expert commercial insurance, personal insurance and group benefits solutions.” – Lee Rogers, CEO of Acera Insurance
