The company was founded as the Halifax Fire Insurance Association in 1809. In the 1950s, Dutch insurer Nationale-Nederlanden established itself in Canada by acquiring the Halifax Insurance Company; Dutch immigration to Canada attracted Nationale-Nederlanden to the country.
In the 1980s, the company continued to grow with the acquisition of three well-known regional insurers - Commerce Group and Belair in Quebec, and Western Union in Alberta. In 1991, Nationale-Nederlanden merged with NMB Postbank to create ING Group, one of the first bank assurance groups in the world. In 1993, as the company's business continued to grow, it brought together its insurance companies that had been operating as separated entities under the umbrella of ING Canada.
