Territoire Promutuel Assurance Bois-Francs

About us

The roots of Promutuel Bois-Francs date back to 1899, when Mr. François-Xavier Desrochers founded the Fire Insurance Mutual Company of the Saint-Médard de Warwick parish. Some 40 years later, this parish mutual merged with the Mutual of Arthabaska and other mutuals to form the Fire Insurance Mutual Company of Arthabaska county. They would undergo several name changes over the years in order to conform to the restructuring of the insurance law and the resulting broadening of their mandate.

In 1978, the Mutual purchased land on a main road in Warwick in order to construct its head office. In 2008, the Mutual Association constructed a new building in Victoriaville to promote the development of the municipality. A few years later, it moved its Head Office to this location and closed its office in Warwick.

Promutuel Insurance Bois-Francs in number:

  • 19.878 insured members who place their trust in us
  • A total of $32,634,000 in written premiums
  • $19,334,000 paid in out in claims in 2020
  • $14,320,000 in members’ equity
