Our purpose at work

As a purpose-built company rooted in co-operative values, we’ve always believed that by protecting Canadian businesses we’re able to better protect the lives, families and communities they impact. We also recognize that our responsibility to our clients, partners, employees and society extends far beyond a policy. We can and should do more, and we hold ourselves to this higher standard. Risk protection is just the start.

Community impact

If strengthening communities is important to you, then we have something powerful in common. Here are just some of the ways we positively impact society.


Supporting the future of Canadian business

Supporting the future of Canadian business

In 2019 we've partnered with Startup Canada, Canada’s entrepreneurship organization. Startup Canada promotes and supports the success and growth of Canada’s 2.3 million entrepreneurs, with a mandate to foster economic growth, competitiveness, and prosperity through entrepreneurship. Startup Canada is the network promoting, inspiring, educating connecting and giving a voice to Canada's entrepreneurs; supporting them to start, operate and scale businesses that build a better Canada for the world today and for future generations.

Since 2005, Sovereign has donated more than $2.6 million to The Children’s Wish Foundation, granting more than 260 wishes to amazing and inspiring wish children.

We also give employees two paid volunteer days each year to support them in getting involved in local communities and the causes they’re passionate about.
