Gore Mutual Insurance Broker
About Gore Mutual
Established in 1839, 28 years prior to Confederation, Gore Mutual’s extensive history can be traced back to the first meeting which took place in a schoolhouse in Brantford, Ontario. Today, the company is Canada’s oldest property and casualty insurance provider, providing over 175 years of strong, personalized service and innovative insurance solutions.
During its long history, Gore Mutual’s philanthropic efforts plays an integral role in what it values most - people. The company has pledged donations for war efforts in both World War I and War II, contributed $75,000 to the building of a new hospital in 1952, the South Waterloo Memorial hospital, now Cambridge Memorial Hospital, assisted victims of the Grand River Flood in 1974 which affected residents of Galt (Cambridge), Ontario, and the company established the Gore Mutual Foundation which supports over 100 charities across Canada each year.
The secret to Gore’s survival in the ever-changing, competitive, and fast-paced insurance industry is the company’s deeply rooted values of courage and cooperation, and care over profit. Gore’s core business revolves around investments not only in the community, but also emerging and innovative technologies like BrokerLift and uBiz in order to proliferate the online insurance market while helping these businesses develop.
Gore provides the comfort of security and support for its clients, broker partners, and local communities where Gore operates and meets needs of its customers, whether their needs are basic or complex. In 2015, new legislation would have allowed Gore Mutual to demutualize, whereby a customer-owned business transitions into a privatized company; however, Gore Mutual decided it would be best to continue operating under its original business model that started the company in the first place. Gore also heavily emphasizes its social values by focusing on improving aspects of local youth, community, and safety.
After 175 years, Gore Mutual continues to provide excellent insurance solutions to millions of customers across Canada. The company looks forward to the future with confidence in its business and socially responsible values.
