Who is Wawanesa Insurance?

Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company was established in 1896 in a small farming community about a 2-hour drive from Winnipeg. It was founded by Alonzo Kempton who used money invested by farmers to protect their equipment. By 1910, the company had become the largest fire insurance company in the country. Today, they are one of the leading property and casualty (P & C) companies in Canada, with offices in California and Oregon in the US.

How can I purchase Wawanesa Insurance car insurance

You can purchase insurance through one of Wawanesa Canada’s approved insurance brokerages – an example of this would be Surex Direct. Brokerages are certified resellers of insurance products for various insurers across Canada – each brokerage will establish agreements with individual insurance companies in order to be able to offer their complement of products.

The benefit of purchasing from an insurance broker is that they have a better understanding of what’s in the market and can provide you with a less biased take on what’s available to you. The primary drawback from purchasing insurance from a broker versus going direct, from insurers who offer direct buying, is that it may cost you a bit more than if you had chosen to purchase directly from an insurer. As always, we recommend you take the time to shop and compare insurance providers to make sure you are getting the best policy for the right price to meet your needs.
