About Wawanesa Auto Insurance

The Manitoba-based Wawanesa Insurance has a long history in the property and casualty business dating back to 1896. That has not made the insurance company complacent at all, since Wawanesa Insurance continues to grow and gain policyholders throughout Canada and the United States.

Like many other insurance companies, Wawanesa Insurance products in Canada are distributed by independent insurance brokers. In Quebec, however, Wawanesa Insurance products are distributed through company agents.

With car insurance on offer since 1928, Wawanesa Insurance has become one of the largest automobile insurers in Canada. The respected insurance rating agency, A. M. Best has consistently awarded Wawanesa Insurance an A+ (Superior) rating based on financial strength and stability.

Wawanesa Insurance also has a social conscience. It donates time and money towards building safer, sustainable communities left more vulnerable due to climate change.
