Dumfries Mutual is a local insurance company, owned by its policyholders. That’s why it is important for us to give back to the community that supports us. Dumfries Mutual is a strong supporter of 4H, community events and other charities.
As the oldest Ontario farm mutual, our history is rooted in the rural community; this prompts Dumfries Mutual to support numerous agricultural societies. Every year these local agricultural societies put on local fairs that are a tradition that goes back almost as far as the creation of mutual insurance companies themselves. They also serve a need of educating urbanites on the food chain.
Dumfries Mutual is continuously looking for ways to support its community, we are proud to support agriculture associations, 4H, local youth programs/charities as well as healthcare associations and local individual causes.

- 4H Ontario
