In 2009, HED was acquired by Alberta based Western Financial Group, resulting in the creation of the Western Financial Group Insurance Solutions subsidiary.

In 2017, Western Financial Group was acquired by Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company, one of Canada’s largest property and casualty insurers. Today, Western Financial Group Insurance Solutions continues to work in partnership with thousands of independent Canadian businesses, associations and buying groups to provide innovative insurance solutions and exceptional customer service.
