About Dominic Alves-Machado, President

Insurance was a career path that I stumbled into by chance and grew into my passion very quickly.  In April of 2021, the opportunity to launch Distinct Insurance presented itself, and with the support of my wife & 2 kids, my dream became a reality.

I have always strived to provide quality home, auto, business, commercial & life insurance products at the best possible price along with providing exceptional service. Insurance is not the most interesting thing to everyone, but it is a necessity, so I try my best to make insurance fun, easy & painless.

When I am not working, you will find me usually with the family or cheering on the Jays or the Raptors.

I have trusted Dominic with my personal insurance for years and I was so impressed that I always recommended him to other people. Not only has he found me the most competitive rates and coverage but his customer service is outstanding and he has a great support staff around him. I gave him a five star review but it would be ten if the score was out of ten. You are in very good hands here.
