About Usborne & Hibbert Mutual Fire Insurance Company
Usborne and Hibbert Mutual Fire Insurance Company was formed in 1876. The company was formed on the basis of neighbour helping neighbour, a concept similar to other Farm Mutuals established at that time. That concept still exists within our culture today. More than a century later Usborne & Hibbert Mutual Fire Insurance Company has not lost its connection with the rural community. We offer protection to our policyholders through Auto, Agribusiness, Commercial and Residential insurance products. For more information, visit www.usborneandhibbert.ca.
