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 believes that no two drivers are the same, and each driver has their unique needs. The products are all specific to each policyholder, and customize policies to the exact needs of the policyholder. There are many factors taken to account like driving record, frequency, number of drivers in your household, etc. Customers have grown to expect several discounts including Anti-theft, Away at School, Loyalty/Renewal, Mature Driver, Multi-Product, Multi-Vehicle Discount and several others. Simply put, Wawanesa provides auto insurance that’s easy to understand and is tailored to the policyholder.
