Wynward Insurance Group specializes in business insurance for professionals in a wide array of industries, including some not often covered by commercial insurers.
Wynward Insurance Group was founded in 1920 when a group of grain producers formed a cooperative to protect their supplies, becoming a small Canadian mutual insurance company. Today, the company has grown to become a major business insurance provider. Wynward is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the privately-held Canadian company James Richardson & Sons, Ltd. (Est. 1857).

Wynward is a relatively small company compared with other Canadian insurance providers, but the company has built a relationship with an extensive network of brokers nationwide.
One of the ways that Wynward Insurance Group differentiates itself from the competition is that it emphasizes custom solutions rather than simply selling a business a package for their industry. Many commercial insurance companies simply sell you a “retail insurance package” if you own a retail company; Wynward appears committed to helping customers build a custom set of coverages based on the unique needs of their specific business.
