January 1, 2023, sees Howard Mutual and West Elgin Mutual come together as Salus Mutual. This amalgamation is a culmination of many months of hard work by the boards and employees of both companies.
Discussions between both companies started in 2021 with the idea to bring two financially strong mutual insurance companies, with the same business philosophies, together to provide greater value for their policyholders. The amalgamation has created a stronger distribution network that covers a large geographic area, thereby, creating an improved spread of risk beyond what either of the two companies previously had.
Salus Mutual’s six branches are located in Aylmer, Blenheim, Dutton, Ridgetown, Rodney, and Shedden. We have several agents (with a broad range of experience) spread across these branches to assist our policyholders with their insurance needs.
As Salus Mutual, we strive to continue to support our communities and to provide the best insurance experience possible.
