In The Community

Our Commitment to Community

It was in 1875, when a group of newcomers moved to a small town in southern Manitoba and found they couldn’t get insurance, that our company first dug its roots into the prairie soil. This history of supporting our communities still holds true for Red River Mutual.

We look to be a positive force in the community and in the lives of our customers and that means we focus on partnering with the communities we protect. Whether that be through loss prevention initiatives and education or supporting projects that bring people together, a lot has changed since 1875, but not our commitment to people.

Spruce Up Your Story Community Sponsorship Initiative

Rec centres, community halls, parks and other beloved public spaces have one thing in common: they bring people together. They are where stories are born, and the ground upon which community is built.

At Red River Mutual, we are deeply connected to the communities we protect. Through the policies we write and the claims we respond to, we’re part of the impactful stories that shape our communities.

It’s in this spirit that Red River Mutual launched a community campaign to save and protect beloved spaces at the heart of our communities, so everyone can continue to create memories for many years to come. To learn more visit our Spruce Up Your Story page.

The Firefighters’ Burn Fund of Manitoba

The dedication of the Firefighters’ Burn Fund of Manitoba to helping burn survivors and their families is what inspires Red River Mutual to support their valuable efforts year after year. As a leading insurer, we know that it’s when people are at their most vulnerable that they need a helping hand. We are committed to doing our small part by standing behind the Firefighters’ Burn Fund as they continue their important work by serving burn survivors in Manitoba.

Firefighters’ Burn Fund Fire Safety Trailers

Since 2011, Red River Mutual has been a major sponsor of the Firefighters’ Burn Fund Fire Safety Trailer Program. This program has seen 22 Fire Safety Trailers deployed throughout Manitoba. These trailers provide interactive fire safety training and emergency response service education to young people who learn about fire safety through the use of props, such as smoke machines and heated doors, that simulate a real house fire.

S.A.F.E. Family Program

Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in preventing fire deaths and injuries in the event of a house fire. The S.A.F.E. (Smoke Alarm for Every) Family Program was developed in partnership with the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service, the Firefighters’ Burn Fund of Manitoba and Red River Mutual to help install smoke alarms in households across Winnipeg and save families from the tragedy of a major house fire.
