In October 1986, John Ballam fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning his own business, partnering with good friend Alcorn Munro of A.A. Munro Agencies Ltd. With a strong emphasis on service, the newly formed company soon built a reputation for providing quality insurance solutions at a fair price.
Several years later, upon Alcorn’s sudden passing, John acquired 100% of the company’s outstanding shares. The success of Ballam Insurance Services eventually led to the 1999 acquisition of Able Insurance Agency Ltd, a brokerage that had served the Halifax and Lower Sackville area for over 20 years. This further established Ballam as a reliable and recognized broker in the Greater Halifax region. In fact, we now represent many of the country’s leading providers, serving a diverse range of clients through highly responsive service, personalized attention and numerous value-added services.
