At its most recent conference, the Canadian Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (CAMIC) appointed Yvan Rose, General Manager of Promutuel Assurance Boréale, to be its new Chairman of the Board of Directors.
In this important role, Mr. Rose will have the opportunity to welcome mutual associations from across Canada to Québec, since the next CAMIC conference will be held in the Charlevoix region in 2015.
It is important to note that it has been twenty-four years since a Québecer was last appointed to this position. Jacques Douville chaired the CAMIC Board of Directors from October 1990 to October 1992. This appointment is a valuable opportunity for Yvan Rose to represent Québec’s interests on the national stage, as well as being a great source of pride for the region.
Amos, October 1, 2014 – Today, the managers of Promutuel Assurance L’Abitibienne and Promutuel Assurance Rouyn-Noranda — Témiscamingue received the necessary approvals from the regulatory authorities to combine their activities into a single mutual company. The new entity will bear the name Promutuel Assurance Boréale.
“We are very proud of this combination. This is a great leap forward that will enable us to benefit from solid financial capital. We will be in a good position to face the strategic issues of our industry, which is essential in the current environment, which is becoming increasingly competitive,” said Yvan Rose, General Manager of Promutuel Assurance Boréale.
The Mutual’s head office will be located in Amos, at 282, 1st Avenue East. The Mutual will use the two old companies’ 12 service offices to continue to serve the insured-members of this large territory. The offices are located in La Sarre, Labelle, Lebel-sur-Quévillon, Malartic, Maniwaki, Mont-Laurier, Mont-Tremblant, Rouyn-Noranda, Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Témiscaming, Val-d’Or and Ville-Marie.
“The two mutual companies have always believed in the importance of cooperation and regional development, and it is in respect of these values that the combination agreement was concluded,” said Yvan Lévesque, the President of the new Mutual.
Several steps were taken before the activities of the two mutual companies could be combined. The insured-members were first called upon to vote on this project at an extraordinary general meeting on May 26 and 27. An application was then submitted to the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), which had to make sure that the new Mutual would meet legal requirements. Finally, the AMF made a recommendation to the ministre des Finances du Québec, who approved the project.
Promutuel Assurance Boréale will count on the expertise of 165 employees, serving its 40,000 insured-members. At December 31, 2013, the premium volume of Promutuel Assurance L’Abitibienne and Promutuel Assurance Rouyn-Noranda-Témiscamingue totalled almost $50 million, making Promutuel Assurance Boréale one of the largest mutual companies in the Groupe, in terms of sales.
On Saturday, May 10, General Manager Yvan Rose and President Yvan Lévesque of Promutuel Assurance Boréale were proud to accept the David Gourd Award from the Chambre de commerce et d'industrie du Centre-Abitibi. This award comes as recognition for the significant contribution the Mutual Association has made to community development, specifically through its sponsorship initiatives and the dedication of its staff.

On October 1, 2014, Promutuel Assurance L’Abitibienne and Promutuel Assurance Rouyn-Noranda − Témiscamingue merged to become Promutuel Assurance Boréale, forming one of the largest mutual associations in Groupe Promutuel in terms of sales.
The mutual association’s head office is in Amos. To continue serving all insured-members across the broad geographical area covered by the new mutual association, all thirteen service offices of the two former entities remain open.
Here is a brief background of the two mutual associations that joined forces to become Promutuel Assurance Boréale:
Founded in 1926 in Amos, the first parish mutual started out its operations in the offices of the local agricultural co-operative. In 1950, it became a county mutual in order to expand its territory. As amendments were made to the Act respecting insurance, the mutual association changed its corporate name and saw its mandate expanded.
In 1985, the Mutuelle contre l'incendie d'Abitibi continued to grow, merging with another fire insurance mutual, the Mutuelle contre l'incendie de Ferme-Neuve, to become the mutual association known as Promutuel L'Abitibienne. Followng that merger, new service outlets were soon opened, namely in Mont-Laurier and Saint-Jovite, to support the mutual association’s sales initiatives.
Promutuel Assurance Rouyn-Noranda – Témiscamingue was the result of the merger in 1977 of two fire insurance mutuals, the Société mutuelle d'assurance contre l'incendie de Témiscamingue and the Compagnie d'assurance mutuelle contre le feu de Saint-Bernard de Beauchastel. At the time of the merger, the mutual association’s head office was established in Lorrainville, then was moved to Ville-Marie in 1984.
The potential for development in the territory served by the mutual association was strong, since the area covered some thirty municipalities with a population of some 55,000 people. To better serve its customer base, the mutual association operated offices in the largest municipalities in the region.
Promutuel Insurance Boréale in number:
