Total Rewards

Our employees are our most important asset and we want to ensure they are happy, engaged, and are part of a culture that enables them to bring their best selves to work, and grow and develop in their careers.

Our total rewards offering starts with competitive compensation and a comprehensive benefits package, and is rounded out by programs that range from pension plans OR a 401(k), to a progressive dress code, to an industry leading paid time off and vacation program.


Community is the essence of who we are and Wawanesa takes pride in being there for our members and communities. Today, our community impact program invests over $3.5 million annually to support local and national partner organizations in Canada and the U.S. We believe that together, we will build a safer, healthier, more sustainable future for our members and communities. 

Wawanesa enables employees to volunteer in the community by providing employees with a “My Community Day” where they can donate their time, talent and energy for a cause important to them. Volunteering is a true expression of Wawanesa’s purpose to look after one another and our value of supporting the communities where we live and work.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

We are committed to building a workforce that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve while creating an equitable and inclusive workplace for everyone. We listen, and actively monitor feedback and progress to ensure everyone feels safe, that they belong here, and that they have the opportunity to succeed. 

We create opportunities for our workforce to engage; to build their awareness, grow their understanding and spur connection to each other. We have formed external partnerships to facilitate learning opportunities and our various employee resource groups foster belonging, provide opportunities for development and serve as a forum for open discussion to facilitate change.
