Notice is hereby given that North American Specialty Insurance Company (“NAS”), an entity incorporated and formed under the laws of Missouri, and an affiliate of Westport Insurance Corporation (“Westport”), intends to file with the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (the “Superintendent”), on or after February 21, 2022, an application under section 574 of the Insurance Companies Act (Canada) for an order approving the insuring in Canada of risks, within the following classes of insurance: property; accident and sickness; aircraft; automobile; boiler and machinery; credit; fidelity; hail; liability; marine; and surety. The head office of NAS is located in Kansas City, Missouri, and its Canadian chief agency will be located in Toronto, Ontario.

Subject to regulatory approval in the United States, the name NAS will be changed to Swiss Re Corporate Solutions America Insurance Corporation, which would also be the name under which its Canadian branch would operate.
