2017 has certainly been a progressive year in the Corporate Partnerships department!
As DAS Canada continues to raise the awareness of our Legal Expense Insurance (LEI) product and its coverage across Canada, we have witnessed a fundamental shift in the market appetite for LEI. This, in turn, has resulted in the development and launch of new partnerships. As a result, we have expanded our internal resources, as well as grown our Corporate Partnerships team.
DAS Canada now services almost 600,000 policyholders throughout the nation, many of whom have been empowered with access to justice. Through the partnerships we are forging with insurers every year, we are reaching more and more Canadians, helping them answer their legal questions and resolving their legal issues. It is a real privilege to service your customers and see how the services we provide help them in impactful and tangible ways.
We value each and every one of our 18 insurer partners. However, we want to give special recognition to the early adopters who have been with us from the beginning. Without you, DAS would not have been able to gain a foothold in the Canadian market and help us deliver access to justice. Thank you for your commitment and faith in us.
Looking forward to 2018, we are proud to welcome our new partners in Western Canada. We are also continuing the conversation in Quebec, where we hope to build on existing legal assist services by delivering the LEI capability.
Thanks to all of you for your attention and continued support. More importantly, the 600,000 Canadians who need legal advice or have been faced with a significant legal issue will thank you.
