First Allstate Insurance Agency in Ontario Celebrates Grand Opening in Windsor

    Strengthening relationships with consumers, one customer at a time

    WINDSOR, ON, June 20 /CNW/ - Last year, Allstate Insurance Company of
Canada announced it was redesigning the look and feel of its existing
Neighbourhood Agent Offices and introduced the new Allstate Insurance Agency.
Today, Mike Donoghue, President & CEO and Christianne Dostie, Vice President
of Allstate were on hand to celebrate the grand opening of the first Allstate
Insurance Agency to open in Ontario, in Windsor.
    "We wouldn't be the company we are today if customers in Ontario didn't
choose to be insured with us," said Donoghue. "Allstate has always tried to do
more for its customers, and the opening of the new Allstate Insurance Agency
in Windsor, is just another step as part of our commitment to respond to the
changing needs and demands of our customers."
    The new Allstate Insurance Agency creates a consistent delivery model by
providing consumers with access to a team of experienced and knowledgeable
Allstate agents who will each be accountable for managing specific aspects of
a customers needs. In each Agency there will be;

    -   An Allstate Agent who will create and develop the relationship at new
    -   An Allstate Agent who will expand the relationship by identifying
        additional features to meet changing and evolving insurance needs;
    -   An Allstate Agent who will strengthen the relationship at renewal and
        provide customer service and support.

    "In making this transition, Allstate is offering our customers something
that other insurance companies do not; value. From our new enhanced phone
system that is easy to navigate, to our professional agents, and the
convenience of our new agencies, Allstate is changing with the times and we
are proud to be a part of this transition," added Brian Byrne, Agency Manager.
"Since we've opened the response from our clients about the new look and
location has been overwhelming. Customers, family members and friends have
come by and said how convenient it is to come to one central location to
handle all of their insurance needs."
    There are now 26 new Allstate Insurance Agencies open for business in
Quebec and New Brunswick, including 7 in Ontario. Additional Allstate
Insurance Agencies will open in Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec and Alberta
throughout 2008.
    "Consumers in Ontario and across Canada are going to notice a difference
with how we do business in the new Allstate Insurance Agency, because they
told us what they are looking for and what they want from an insurance company
and we listened," Dostie added.

    Allstate Insurance Company of Canada produces and distributes home and
auto insurance products right across Canada. The "Good Hands Network" enables
consumers to contact Allstate through one of our 425 exclusive community-based
