The quaint and friendly Acadian village of Saint-Antoine was a logical location for Vienneau Insurance to expand into and open its first branch office in 1977. Best known as the birthplace of New Brunswick’s first elected Acadian Premier – Louis j. Robichaud – Saint-Antoine is also the hometown of our longtime CEO, Jean-Claude Léger. When an opportunity arose to buy a small local insurance broker in town, JC didn’t hesitate.
Although Saint-Antoine is easily the smallest village out of which we operate, the support received from the residents right from the start has made this one of our favorite spots to be in. Not only do we feel the love from the village itself, but we get tremendous also from the surrounding area, and count an incredible number of clients from: Notre-Dame, Sainte-Marie-de-Kent, Cocagne, and McKees Mills, just to name a few.
Our Saint-Antoine branch currently employs five full time employees from the area. Fun fact: The building we operate out of is actually located in an old bank, and we use the old vault as a supply storage. So, our pens and highlighters are well protected!
