Insuring Generations

West Wawanosh Mutual Insurance formed in 1879 by a group of farmers who banded together when other insurance companies refused to help. We have a deep history of supporting our neighbours and our commitment to strong relationships, local connections and our policyholders sets us apart from the competition. 
You don’t stay in business for over 140 years unless you’re doing something right. Throughout the years, technology may have changed, but our heritage, guiding principles and belief that we are stronger together remains steadfast and firmly rooted.

Invested in Community

We believe in working to support thriving communities in rural Ontario. Our agents, brokers, directors and staff are your neighbours. We are invested in supporting local and we are dedicated to helping our communities any way we can. Whether it is giving back through scholarships, spending time at the local Friendship Games, or supporting high school students interested in the insurance industry, we are dedicated to our heritage or supporting our neighbours. 

The Mutual Difference

Not all insurance companies are the same. Mutual insurance companies are different because they are owned by the policyholders. We are not driven by our shareholders or responsible for generating a profit, which can lead to overcharging. We strive to offer fair, consistent and reasonable insurance rates that ensure our policyholders are safe, secure and protected. We believe in cooperation and self-reliance.

What our community says...

“Thank you so much! I am honoured. This goes a long way and really helps me out paying for school. I cannot thank you guys and West Wawanosh Mutual Insurance enough for this award!”

“Our family home was hit by the 2019 spring flood. Our property and buildings were 4ft underwater. Our little kids thought it was really cool, we did not. We were full of anxiety not knowing how we would get through this. We canoed from our front door to the road in an overnight rise of several feet of water. From our initial call to West Wawanosh we felt like it would all be ok. Their service is second to none. Our representative assured us immediately that we can get through this -together. We immediately had a hotel room for the four of us. They took action on the property within a day. The personal service we received was so comforting. In a situation that seemed so bleak we had the real assurance that it was all handled. We spent 7 weeks in a hotel with many other families. Their stories weren't like ours. Their difficulties with their insurance companies really showed us how lucky we were to have West Wawanosh on our side. All is well now as our home is back to normal. There is not enough space here to share all of the amazing moments working with this insurer. Look no further. This is how your coverage should be. Thank you West Wawanosh Insurance.”

“I was in a minor accident on the QEW and was talking to someone in the West Wawanosh Mutual claims department immediately. They helped me with towing instructions, gave me information about renting a car, and sent an appraiser the next business day. I'm so appreciative of their fast help!”

My husband and I were building a new house in the area, when we started asking around about homeowners insurance. West Wawanosh Mutual Insurance is the name that kept coming up. So happy with our experience, we have moved all of our home and auto insurance to them.
