Testimonials

“SUMAssure brings so much value to municipalities that I really can’t imagine working somewhere that doesn’t have it. You just won’t get that kind of coverage through a private insurance company without it costing a fortune. Everything is all in one package, from our bonds all the way down to equipment, and their coverage makes sure we’re not using more tax dollars after a claim to actually replace what we’ve lost.

The value goes beyond just the premiums, too. SUMAssure has the right people in place to help us through the whole claims process. They are experts in their field who kept me calm during stressful situations and walked me through each step. They also saved me so much time during the repair process, contacting the right people for the job while keeping me in the loop.

They understand the municipal point of view. They’re the masters of it, so why would you go anywhere else?”

– Erinn Schreiner—Chief Administrative Officer – Town of St. Brieux

“Your job as a council and administration is to look after your community in the best way possible. To me, that includes getting the best insurance coverage you can, and that means choosing SUMAssure. It’s a plan built specifically for municipalities, led by a board of people who know what’s important to our sector, and they are much more willing to listen and understand what we need. What better way is there to protect what you have?

SUMAssure takes care of municipalities in a unique way, and offers the least restrictive coverage of any provider I am familiar with.”

“As elected officials and municipal staff, we strive to provide the best infrastructure, safest facilities, and most efficient public services possible, despite perpetual constraints to our budgets and changing legislation. In Kindersley, we spent many months examining the pros and cons of leaving the local insurance broker. On every level, SUMAssure was better. SUMAssure helps us wade through this regulated environment and is developed, controlled, governed, amended and shaped by us, and pays
dividends… to us. It is created by municipalities for municipalities, meeting our specific needs as we see them. Under the guidance of Aon, SUMAssure delivers to municipalities a property and liability insurance product that is unrivaled -responsive, informative, no-cost risk management with first class customer service. After four years as a subscriber, we are more confident than ever that we made the right decision.”

– Bernie Morton, Former Chief Administrative Officer – Town of Kindersley

“Our flooding disaster could have been much worse if not for SUMAssure. The professional manner in which our claim was handled, the coverage of our insurance, and the ability to be involved in the restoration project from day one made the process seamless. They took the time to explain the process, met with us on a regular basis, and were available the morning
after the disaster. Our request to temporarily relocate was approved immediately, which allowed us to be up and fully operational within a few days of the flooding. I would never want anyone else to experience a disaster, but just know that if you do, you will not be disappointed with SUMAssure and the exceptional coverage they provide.”

– Scott Blevins, City Manager – City of Martensville

“As elected officials and municipal staff, we strive to ensure that our Municipality manages risk to provide the safest possible community for our residents, our staff and of course our volunteers. SUMAssure has become a valuable resource for Administration, Staff and Council through the education sessions, inspections, assistance and guidance that they offer on a regular basis. It truly is more than just an insurance policy and paying claims. From questions on preventing lawsuits and preserving property to assistance on occupational health and safety rules and regulations, SUMAssure has always been able to provide valuable resources for us. The Town of Rosetown is a founding member with SUMAssure who has been providing property and liability insurance products and risk management to municipalities since 2009.”

– Michele A. Schmidt, Former Chief Administrative Officer – Town of Rosetown

“SUMAssure gives us the coverage we require, is able to provide it at a reasonable cost, and the staff is extremely helpful whenever we have questions or concerns.”

– Village of Dodsland

“During a review of Maple Creek’s general insurance in 2014, we compared offerings from SUMAssure and SGI. SUMAssure offers a comprehensive insurance policy with great coverage at a cost-effective price, so we made the decision to switch to SUMAssure. We’ve been pleased and impressed with the services and advice we’ve received since then. Everything is handled quickly, professionally, and pleasantly. SUMAssure understands that urban municipalities have specific insurance needs, so it’s been a great change for the Town of Maple Creek.”

– Town of Maple Creek Council

“Nuisance claims used to be just that ‘a nuisance’. The SUMAssure team provides a fair and balanced approach to resolving a claim. Fair to the customer while protecting the integrity of the municipality.”

– Kim Gartner, Chief Administrative Officer – Town of Macklin

“Since 2008, Carnduff has had four property claims settled to our satisfaction. SUMAssure has also provided us risk control engineering services on four of our facilities. Their focus just isn’t on settling claims, but rather trying to stop them from happening in the first place. On top of all of this, we received an equity cheque back from SUMAssure in 2013! Now with an unlimited free legal advice hotline to its range of services, I can only expect things to get even better.”

– Ross Apperley, Mayor – Town of Carnduff
