Thank you Economical for your support!

Founded in 1871, Economical Insurance is one of Canada's leading property and casualty insurers. Based in Waterloo, this Canadian-owned and operated group services the insurance needs of more than one million customers across the country. 

In 2017, Economical accepted the Relay baton by contributing $110,500 to support ten Relay For Life events in Ontario and one event in Brossard, Quebec, helping the Canadian Cancer Society go the extra mile to find a cure for cancer. This spring, hundreds of participants who attended these 11 Relay For Life events raised $1.35 million for cancer research and support services for those affected by cancer.
Since 2000, Economical Insurance has supported the cancer cause by supporting Relay For Life and other Canadian Cancer Society fundraising initiatives in Ontario.

We thank Economical Insurance for their continued support.
