Insurance is a community at its core: a group comes together to pool resources, so that if any one member needs help, the group’s resources are available to them. We are a philanthropic organization and give generously to people and organizations – not for fame or accolades, but because we can afford to be generous in a community that we love.

Work With Us

Do you want to join a company that cares about their employees and their community? We’re always looking to bring fun, compassionate, hard workers into our growing family. We look forward to hearing from you.

I would like to commend you on your speedy processing of drug and dental claims. Your department must be well organized! You give new meaning to the terms "payment policy" and "Claims Department".


It's not very often you speak to an insurance company and hang up smiling!


One of the big challenges for small businesses in attracting top employees is their inability to offer benefit plans that are comprehensive and affordable. What most small biz owners don’t realize is that they can access such benefit plans just by joining their local Chamber of Commerce.

900 Chambers across Canada have partnered with the Johnston Group in Winnipeg to deliver these programs. They have plans for businesses with one to 25 employees and other plans for companies with more than 25 employees.

The Johnston Group is a first-rate organization and have been named one of Canada’s 50 best managed companies.

There’s nothing in this for me. They don’t even know I’m writing this…it’s just important information that most small businesses don’t know.

Responsiveness and responsible are two words that I would use to categorize my experience. And top that off with no employee complaints makes it that much better.


The difference is in the service. I have never had a question left unanswered or a concern that were not addressed in a timely manner. There have been very few complaints from our employees regarding the services, and on the rare occasion where there was an issue, it was addressed quickly.


I look forward to many more years working together. Thank you for making my job easier!


Great website where most updates and questions can be answered online, therefore, very little paper needs to be kept in our files.
