Community Impact

Community is the essence of who we are 

Wawanesa takes pride in being there for our members and communities. Today, our community impact program invests over $3.5 million annually to support local and national partner organizations in Canada.

Together, we will build a safer, healthier, more sustainable future for our members and communities.

Climate resiliency is a growing need we see in every community we insure.

Our new Wawanesa Climate Champions program invests $2 million annually to support people on the front lines of climate change who are working to build more resilient communities.

We’re bringing our program to life with community partners in three pillars: Environmental Guardians, Community Protectors and Youth Stewards.

Conservationists, farmers and Indigenous Peoples working on nature-based solutions for climate resiliency.

Disaster preventers, responders and rebuilders working to protect our members and communities from climate-related disasters, before and after they occur.

The next-generation of Wawanesa Climate Champions taking action to help our communities become more climate resilient.

In addition to Wawanesa Climate Champions, a variety of company-led programs deepen our impact in the communities where Wawanesa members, employees and broker partners live and work.

Every year, employees receive paid work time to give back to their local community. For this they earn a $100 Community Impact Gift Card to donate to a charity or non-profit organization of their choice.

Our annual United Way campaign supports local community organizations by bringing together employees across the company. With Wawanesa’s donation matching program every contribution is doubled to make an even greater impact.
