We've Made A Lot Of Changes In Order To Remain The Same


The Portage la Prairie Mutual Insurance Company was organized October 2, 1884, based on the underlying principles of security, integrity, hard work and personalized service. Over the years, we've made a lot of changes in the way we do business. We've expanded our products and services and built a reputation as one of the most responsive property and casualty insurers in Canada. But the underlying principles that guide our company -and the friendly, small town style of doing business- remain the same.

Our network of more than 500 independent insurance brokers is supported by our Head Office in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, as well as by Branch Offices and Claims Service Offices across Canada.

As a 100 per cent Canadian-owned mutual insurance company, the success of Portage Mutual depends upon serving policyholders with fairness, and showing genuine concern for their security. We do this by providing reasonably priced, flexible insurance products and by supporting our brokers with exemplary service.

At Portage Mutual, we believe that doing business with integrity never goes out of style. It is as important today as it was when we began over 130 years ago, and it is part of what makes Portage Mutual customers so loyal.

Portage Mutual markets its products through independent brokers. These professionals are hand-picked because they display a commitment to excellence and expect the same in return. We believe this partnership approach results in better service and value for our policyholders.
