About Harvard Western Insurance




The Company that Cares

At Harvard Western Insurance, we do everything but walk your dog (though you may even find a few of us willing to do that)! From home insurance to business insurance, health benefits to motor licence issuing, we offer protection wherever you need it most.

We are The Company that Cares. While that may sound cliché, the truth is we actually DO care about each and every one of our clients. We treat you like family and do everything we can to ensure you’re properly protected. This is reflected in our CRISP values; Not to be confused with the British word for chips (which we also love).

Respect: We maintain mutual respect in all of our dealings.

Integrity: We conduct ourselves in a transparent, ethical and honest manner.

Our Vision

Harvard Western Insurance is changing the way families and businesses manage risk through innovative solutions and extraordinary service.

Our Why

The reason we come to work every day is because we care about people. We express our caring by protecting individuals and businesses from uncertainty, one client at a time.
