Insuring a Sense of Place

Smaller places, wide open spaces and neighbourhoods where kids can roam have all taken on a new lustre of late. The Commonwell Mutual Insurance Group specializes in protecting the families, the farms, the business owners and the individuals, who together, understand these places. Houses, trucks, tractors and cars, equipment, backyards, back forties and offices are assets you value and we insure. But it's this sense of place and what makes it unique that we've had in common all along.

Investing in Community Resiliency & Capacity

The Commonwell is committed to wide open spaces and smaller places across Ontario; what we refer to as Commonwell Country. So we created an investment program to help our communities grow; growth that results in resiliency and capacity for the future. We invest in organizations that help communities come together, we invest in food security for all by inspiring everyone to participate. Our impact is about more than grants and financial support – it’s about realizing the amazing potential of Ontarians coming together.


The Impact of Good

So what’s the impact of growing resiliency, capacity, learning and engagement in Commonwell Country? What does it look like on the ground? We’re glad you asked and we’re excited to show you. Read the 2023 Impact Report to find out.




The last few years have been challenging for many communities. Yet it is equally true that these same communities are learning to bounce back, creating new ideas and working together. At The Commonwell, we believe we can help speed up the process by investing in it. We call it L.E.A.F. – the Learning and Engagement Accelerator Fund. How it works is simple: We’re inviting every community in Ontario to earn L.E.A.F. grants that will help bring in new programming or update and upgrade community facilities where residents learn, play, engage and gather. If it builds capacity and resiliency, it will be considered.


The SEEDit Initiative

One out of every ten people in Ontario don’t have enough to eat and more lack access to fresh and nutritious choices. So let’s do something about that. The Commonwell’s SEEDit program inspires food sharing by helping you start a veggie garden in your backyard and giving you tips and advice to maximize your harvest. We’re helping backyard farmers grow what’s good, share it with others and create communities of like-minded neighbours. SEEDit is just the beginning of improving food security together.
