History

Lyon & Butler Insurance Brokers Ltd. began with George S. Lyon, a man with a vision for success. Mr. Lyon entered into the insurance business in 1898, originally as Lyon & Higginbottom.

During his lifetime George S. Lyon not only had an extremely successful insurance career but was also a world-class golfer. In 1904, which was the last Olympics to include golf before the current era, Mr. Lyon won the gold medal. He continued on until 1932 winning eight Canadian Amateur championships, ten Canadian Senior titles and four U.S./Canadian Senior championships.

In 1931 Fred M. Lyon, son of George S. Lyon, continued in his father’s footsteps in insurance. He joined with Arthur H. Butler to form what is presently known as Lyon & Butler Insurance Brokers Ltd.

Over the last 85 years, Lyon & Butler has gained valuable experience and a thorough understanding of their clients’ needs. This knowledge enables the staff to provide full risk management for both corporate and personal clients.

Through our excellent relationships with our many carriers, we are able to provide comprehensive business, personal and financial insurance packages at a reasonable cost. We continually offer innovative solutions for your specific insurance needs.

At Lyon & Butler, we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service. Through ongoing educational and training courses, we continue to enhance our knowledge and improve our customer assistance in order to serve you better.
