About Gougeon Insurance Brokers - Our Approach.


It is our aim to properly guide and advise you on all your insurance needs. We are always collaborating with insurers, industry experts and member associations to build a team of excellence to find solutions when it seems impossible.

No Means Ask Again.

We won’t stop until you’re satisfied. We pursue clients who will work proactively with us as business partners to reduce and prevent losses, which will ultimately improve your bottom line.

Own It.

It’s our job to work on your behalf as your risk advisor. We hold ourselves accountable to ensure we have your back and are there for you when you need us.

Straight Talk.

Insurance can be confusing. We’re here to listen to your concerns and to understand your company. We will offer expert, candid advice and we’ll work with you to help you reach your goals.

Our Philosophy.

We focus on your insurance needs so that you can focus on achieving your business goals and being more profitable. We work proactively with our clients to think outside the box about risk.

We’ve created a number of Risk Solutions for our clients to help with everything from Employee Engagement of their staff, to Cyber Security, Disaster Planning, Fleet Management and conducting HR Risk Assessments. By identifying your potential risks ahead of time, you can be better prepared and perhaps even save money from claims and many other associated costs.

Sudbury Community Airbandz 

What started as an idea by Judy Gougeon, to bring Airbandz to the community, developed into the first event in 2016 in Greater Sudbury. This lip sync dance competition revived the 80s to raise money for the fight against cancer.

Travelling through to the 90s, the 2017 Sudbury Community Airbandz danced and swayed to classic jams by our favourite 90s boy and girl bands. To finally, bring us all the way back to the 70s on Saturday, February 3, 2018, where 6 teams competed for the final Airbandz Champions title.

Thanks to the generous support of participating teams, sponsors, event goers, and the community at large over the 3 years, over $120,000 was raised for the Northern Cancer Foundation and the fight against cancer!
