History of FNF Canada 

How did FNF Canada get here? The journey of FNF Canada began as LandCanada in the early 1990s, when its founders pioneered standardized transaction management for mortgage processing. This innovative approach was more efficient and cost-effective than traditional methods. And it quickly gained traction. The company's first lender program was awarded by a major Canadian financial institution, which is a relationship that has been maintained ever since.  

In 2003, LandCanada was acquired by Fidelity National Financial Inc., ultimately creating FNF Canada.  

This marked a significant milestone, transforming FNF Canada into a national brand with a strong presence across the country.
