Year in Review

We are looking back and reminiscing on another year gone by, seeing all the projects that we’ve been part of and realizing Insurance Can Be Spectacular.

Thank you to our community

Nova Mutual strives to put our community first. We are proud to support the communities in which we live and do business. Through sponsorships, highlights, and attending events, we made community a priority throughout the year!

We have a lot of inspiring young people, working hard to do amazing things in our community. This year, we got to uplift and recognize Ryder Mandryk who has been advocating for a rainbow crosswalk in Simcoe – raising funds to make our community brighter, more colourful and more inclusive.

When we found out that our friends at Spectrum Gymnastics Club were facing a barrier to making their space even more accessible to all, we jumped in to help. We Uplifted their Lift the Limits fundraiser with a sponsorship, purchasing tickets, and some video footage to help Teagan spread the word about what she needed.

We wanted to help ensure that everyone had a great start this September by donating school snacks to several local food banks. We partnered up with Helping Hand Tillsonburg, Hagersville Food Bank, and Simcoe Caring Cupboard to wish those heading back to school a wonderful year ahead.

We were proud sponsors (and attendees!) of Eat & Drink Norfolk, Downtown Simcoe Friday Night Market, Norfolk County Fair & Horse Show, Hometown for the Holidays, Murray Johnson Annual Local League Tournament in Hagersville, Waterford Minor Hockey and the Jarvis Light Up. Our team loves local and supporting these amazing community events throughout the year.

Thank you to our members

At Nova, our members matter! This year, we got to meet so many members, doing amazing and unique things. We are proud to share their incredible stories through our Member Spotlights and trips.

We explored right in our own backyard, discovering the bright and cheerful Firefly and Fox Books, firing up the grill with our new pal Chad from Norfolk BBQ, getting energized with Altitude Coffee Roasters, learning how Custom Print Shop helps small businesses to grow, and going off the beaten path to find ourselves at the beautiful Hideaway Hills.

We took a trip to London to learn more about the areas and people that we serve, checking out Os & Oakes (they’ve just moved into an amazing new space, so it looks like we might need to make another trip next year!), tasting the delicious offerings of Blackfriars Bistro and learning about the beautiful blooms, and inspiring backstory, of Regency Florists.

After some more local member visits in between, we took another trip, this time to Niagara Falls where we found two members doing incredible things to support and uplift their communities. Third Space Café and Grow Food Market are both making a difference, and a positive impact through accessible and affordable food and connection.

Thank you to our team

As we’ve expanded and evolved, we have always embraced uplifting Team Nova, and allowing opportunities for learning, development, and growth from within. We congratulate many of our team who worked hard on professional (and personal) milestones – completing courses and reaching for new heights here at Nova. We couldn’t be prouder of their determination and drive and happy to celebrate a year of hard work paid off! Thank you to all of Team Nova for your incredible work this year!

Thank you to our agents

Our agency is growing and we’re happy to uniquely support each of our agents in the communities that they live and serve. Insurance can be sponsoring little league hockey, a local newsletter, and a Santa Claus parade.

Thank you to our brokers

We’re appreciative of our wonderful broker partnerships. Thank you for the support that you have shown us once again this year. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to continue to uplift our members and community the way we do.


From Random Acts of Kindness to our Uplift Podcast, Member Spotlights and Community Highlights, team celebrations, agent support, and broker appreciation – we have packed so many amazing projects and people into the last year. Thank you all for a truly remarkable year of supporting our community, spotlighting our members, and showing us that Insurance Can Be Uplifting, Inclusive, Local, Upbeat, Your Story… Spectacular!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year, and all the best in 2023!

We are proud of our many amazing members, and our ability to customize solutions as unique as they are. Interested in learning more?
