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, so we focus on partnering with those communities we protect. While loss prevention initiatives and education or supporting projects that bring people together adapt and change over time, our commitment to people remains strong.

Spruce Up Your Story Community Sponsorship Initiative

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.

The Spruce Up Your Story initiative isn’t about bringing a brand-new rec centre or library to life – rather, it will honour and protect the spaces that are well-worn and well-loved – the places where stories are already being made. So far, we have been able to support 20 communities across Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Safety Initiatives

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.



Within Winnipeg, you can book a Fire Safety Trailer online through the City’s website: Fire Safety House – Fire Paramedic Service – City of Winnipeg.

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. To date, over 7,500 smoke alarms have been professionally installed in Manitoba households. Visit for more information and to sign up.
