History of Wawanesa

In our Centennial year of 1996, we published, "Old Pathways New Horizons" tracing the history of The Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company from its inception in 1896 to 1996. Today, Wawanesa Insurance continues to grow and serve its policyholders in Canada and the United States guided by the same values instilled in our company since 1896.

We hope you enjoy reading about our journey during our first 100 years.

President & Chief Executive Officer
