Josslin Insurance is committed to supporting the communities where we all live and work. They support local causes and celebrate employees who give back to their communities. With a passion for helping young children reach their potential, Josslin Insurance is a true Strong Start champion.

Josslin’s relationship with Strong Start began in 2006 and has continued to grow and develop over the past decade. Each year Josslin supports the Letters, Sounds and WordsTM program in Waterloo Region, honouring schools in the neighbourhoods surrounding their offices. This is truly a wonderful way for them to support their immediate communities and the children that live there.

When asked why they are so passionate about helping children learn to read, Scott Wagler, Partner & Director of Operations at Josslin Insurance had this to say:

Community is everything to us. Strong Start lets us support the communities that we’re involved in, that we live in. We have kids that go to school in these communities. We want to help them flourish. Leaders are readers, and we want to develop leaders. The best way to do it is to help them learn to read.”

Josslin has leveraged their relationship with Gore Mutual Insurance Company Foundation to garner matching support for Strong Start for the last 9 years. Gore Mutual Insurance brokers nominate registered Canadian charities they are passionate about to receive support from the foundation. Their commitment to develop the leaders of tomorrow, and build healthy, strong communities is in perfect alignment with Strong Start’s goals.
