The Commonwealth Mutual
The mutual insurance business began in the late 1800s with the particular need of farmers to protect their

Insurance products were added – residential, automobile, commercial and watercraft. One thing remained
constant, though, for the now 40 mutual insurance companies in Ontario – their value of personal service,
of human interaction and their passion for dealing with like-minded people.
