Our Story

C.J. Campbell Insurance – Trusted Insurance Specialists in Alberta since 1912


Charles John Campbell began his insurance career in Calgary in 1912 as a partner in the firm of Graham Hamilton and Campbell. In 1930 he incorporated his own business which has continued to bear his name since that time, and through the decades the Campbell family has remained involved in the business. In 1986 Fred Weisse, who was a partner in the Calgary office, opened an Edmonton location with the purchase of a small agency. In 2001 the Edmonton office became independent of its Calgary affiliate. In 2004 Darin Oakford assumed management of the office and with Fred’s full retirement in 2010 Darin assumed the role of President. Two additions were made to the partnership team with Sandra Couturier becoming partner in 2014 and Chris Lewis becoming partner in 2018. With the sudden passing of Darin in 2023, Sandra assumed the role of President and continues that role to this day.

How We Work For You
When you buy through an Insurance Broker, you are using the services of qualified professionals, like CJ Campbell Insurance, who understand your needs. We operate independently of any insurance company and solely on behalf of you, our customer. More importantly, we are not tied to any one insurance company. We have access to an extensive range of policies offered by many of the major property and casualty insurance companies including Aviva, Intact, Peace Hills, Wawanesa, SGI Canada and Pembridge and a number of other esteemed insurance providers.
Your Broker Buys For You… AND Only You
Shopping around for personal or commercial insurance can be a bewildering task for even the most sophisticated buyer. This is where CJ Campbell Insurance can make insurance buying so much easier for you. By using our expertise, we are able to assess the many and various policy alternatives currently available in the insurance marketplace. Then, guided by your special insurance requirements, we select the coverage that’s right for you. And, using our contacts and experience, we are able to negotiate for the best terms… so that we can buy at the price that suits your budget.

Speaking to a large insurance company can sometimes be a frustrating and intimidating experience. But speaking to one of our Brokers is easy… and gets results, fast! Remember, we’re on your side.
