Silver Capri Silver Valkyrie


Capri began in Kelowna in 1975 with a handful of staff, and has grown to become one of the largest independent brokers in Western Canada with over 280 staff in 11 offices.  We have partnered with the Frank Cowan Company to deliver Cowan Public Entity insurance to the municipal and local government sector.  Our staff have extensive experience identifying and managing risk for insurable and non-insurable exposures derived from years of providing guidance to many of the major municipal risks in British Columbia.  Some of the keys to our success include specially tailored Property & Liability coverages, including Errors & Omissions and Environmental Liability, risk management and educational seminars and publications, contract review and risk transfer support, and construction insurance services.


Valkyrie Law Group offers a full suite of responsive and innovative solicitor and litigation services to local governments. We have advised on novel local government service provision, such as through municipal corporations, revitalization tax exemptions and the establishment of community energy systems, as well as on council procedures, conflict of interest, bylaw enforcement, tax sale disputes, remedial action orders, and environmental appeals. We are experienced with drafting and advising on contract matters, such as municipal service contracts, inter-governmental agreements, partnering agreements with First Nations and other public and private bodies; privacy and access to information; planning and land development; expropriation; covenants, statutory rights of way, leases; licenses; procurement matters and construction contracts.
