That's a serious increase.
I'm with Intact (via Cornerstone Insurance Brokers) and for my 2011 DL650 with $500 deductible + 2mil coverage + all perils = $847/year
You could also try Rider Plus Insurance Brokers, John Duffy Brokers, State Farm.
On a side note - compared to the US insurance, our policies must provide no fault coverage here which covers for income loss, and medical/rehab for up to 10 years regardless of who is at fault. The thing is that Janice and I would get the same mandatory level of post accident care even though her premium is almost double mine with same driving record. It pays to shop around, because premium rates vary widely.
I happily pay for my insurance - 10 yrs ago I was hit head-on by a soccer van (literally) and was off work for a year and had about 100 physio/massage appts, etc, etc... and then I closed my case by suing the insurance company of the other driver. No financial cost to me other than my yearly premium which I can pay for the rest of my life and still come out ahead. Again, because the baseline coverage is mandatory across all providers in Ontario, it pays to shop around for the lowest premium.
