Our Origins

In 1920, a group of prairie grain companies united to charter their own insurance company in response to the high premiums charged for fire insurance on their grain elevators. Through this partnership, Grain Insurance & Guarantee was born.

Over time we expanded, serving customers in all provinces and territories with a world-class broker network. In 2013, we recognized our service offering had expanded far beyond the origins of Grain Insurance. So, we rebranded with a view to the future, providing the utmost in protection and risk management for a wide variety of customers.

Today, we proudly serve Canadian businesses from coast to coast as we continue prioritizing our customer’s best interests through our products and services.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Wynward Insurance Group strongly believes in giving back. It’s a commitment that stems from respect and appreciation for the communities we serve and the places our employees call home.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Winnipeg-based James Richardson & Sons, Limited, Wynward’s corporate philanthropy is initiated through the Richardson Foundation. The Richardson Foundation’s vision and mission focus on creating sustainable futures for registered Canadian charitable organizations in the Visual and Performing Arts, Education, Youth Initiatives and Environmental Issues.

In addition to our involvement with the Richardson Foundation, our employees across Canada join forces each year to participate in an annual United Way campaign and raise money for a brighter future for those in need.
