Kanetix.ca is a website that allows people to search for and compare insurance quotes. Gregory Ellis and George Small founded Kanetix Ltd., the company that runs the site, way back in 1999. Before Kanetix Ltd. came around, people shopped for insurance by looking through phone books and calling one broker or company after another. Since it was such a time consuming process, oftentimes people did not do as thorough a search as they should have, and thus, they were not getting the best prices possible. With that in mind, Kanetix Ltd. came into existence. Kanetix also services the United States insurance market through the website Kanetix.com.
The name Kanetix has several different references embedded in it. Most obviously, Kanetix sounds similar to “kinetic,” a word that means “of, or relating to, motion.” “Kinetic” is most often seen in association with the phrase “kinetic theory,” which refers to the fact that all substances are made out of particles that are in constant motion.

Also, the “kan” in Kanetix sounds like the “can” in Canada, the country that Kanetix.ca services. Kanetix spells its name with a “k” to show that they’re different and unusual.
