- Innovation/Technological Advancement


Our industry is evolving with a greater investment and dependence on technology.  The design of the office facility in 2009 was significantly influenced by this.  A number of the key initiatives in this area are:

1. Evolving the business to paperless through technologies and improved workflows.

2. We emphasize the importance of wellness and our working environment is designed to increase the amount of natural light with less dependence on ambient lighting.

3. We have a responsibility and take pride in providing leading edge insurance products and services to our members.  This is driven by the motivation to be best in class.

- Community Involvement 1. Our organization encourages employees and board members to be active in volunteerism within the community and our industry.  Staff receive one “paid day” annually for volunteerism in the community.

2. Our legacy includes generous support for community programs including capital campaigns.  This is being enhanced with a focus on four key areas: 1. Healthcare; 2. Emergency Response, specifically firefighting and Crime Stoppers; 3. Recreation and wellness; and 4. Agriculture, including farm safety and education.  We estimate our annual contributions will exceed $200,000.00.

3. Our business operations returns approximately $35 million back into the economy locally throughout Midwestern Ontario annually, through employment, consumption of products and services and claims costs.  We are committed to supporting local business and to consume locally grown and produced goods.


-  Employment Creation 1. We have a staff compliment of 60 and this has increased by approximately 35% since Trillium was formed through an amalgamation of Elma Mutual and Formosa Mutual in 2004.

2. Our philosophy is to develop a team of professionals with a focus on internal specialized skills.

3. The leadership vision includes a commitment to internal promotions, financial and moral support for pursuit of industry and other professional designations, competitive compensation, life balance and wellness initiatives and excellent working conditions.

4. The recent project to build a modern office facility was favourably designed for future generations of employees with a high regard for our current team.

5. Our progressive business strategy enhances employment opportunities for our distributor partners and those who are engaged to provide claims remediation work.


- Safety in the Workplace and Acceptance in the Market  1. Safety initiatives for office and field personnel are a priority and organized and monitored by an internal Joint Health & Safety Committee with qualified personnel.

2. Wellness programs and a fitness room in the office space allow us to deliver on initiatives that we advocate.  We also host an on-site wellness fair annually which facilitates convenient access for our personnel.

3. Trillium Mutual has worked effectively at developing a respected and recognized brand that has complimented our pursuit of a positive and professional reputation in the community.  We believe through support of business opportunities and consumer surveys, we are consistently achieving our goals in this area.


- Commitment to Environmental Awareness 1. In 2013 we were awarded the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold designation for the construction and maintenance of our office facility.  This was a robust process and the goal of the Board of Directors when the project was designed.  We believe we have a responsibility to lead by example, the LEED designation provides the creditability to do so.  This is the first LEED building in North Perth.

2. Our fleet of automobiles includes Hybrid vehicles.  The building is technologically advanced to reduce paper consumption, reduce emissions, reduce energy consumption and increase awareness for employees and visitors to the importance of environmental stewardship.

2. Whenever possible, we purchase and consume goods and services that are produced and processed locally.  This also applies to suppliers to claims remediation costs, in concert with our consumers, we promote the use of local suppliers.


- Displaying Community of Character Attributes 1. Perhaps our greatest accomplishment is our commitment to transparency and accountability to our members, stakeholders and the community at large.  We commissioned an independent Governance Review in 2012 by the Clarkson Institute.  The results confirm our growth in governance practices, which sets a fine example for all aspects of our business.   § The company’s Core Values are:  Trust; Expertise; Accountable and Motivation.
