Purpose is in our DNA
It’s the reason we exist beyond profit and use our business as a force for good. In celebration of Gore Mutual’s Foundation’s 25th Anniversary, see how we’re bringing that commitment to life.
Insurance means more than shared risk. It also means shared reward.
At Gore Mutual, we’ve been working, expanding and adapting through change, adversity and opportunity for more than 180 years.
One of Canada’s first property and casualty insurance companies.
Through each bold change we make, we’re staying true to our modern mutual roots, providing people and communities with the very best in protection.
As we pave the way to expand across Canada, we’ve kept innovating and investing across talent, technology and product – everywhere it matters most.
What it means to be a modern mutual
Taking care of our people, customers, broker partners and communities is a top priority – so our bottom line takes care of itself.
Turning our profits from today toward a better tomorrow for all.
Focusing our resources on collective, long-term rewards and sustainability over short-term gratification.
