Westland Insurance Becomes Home Sponsor in Habitat for Humanity Saskatchewan’s Yorkton Chapter

Westland Insurance embarks on Habitat for Humanity Canada partnership in support of local families

YORKTON, Saskatchewan, Aug. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Westland Insurance is giving back to the community by providing funds to help support the build of Habitat for Humanity Yorkton Chapter’s ninth home.

Earlier this year, Westland Insurance established the Amplifying Communities initiative, which continues a longstanding tradition of commitment to the people and communities it serves. Westland Insurance’s goal is to support community projects across the country where the brokerage has a presence, and where funding can have a lasting and meaningful impact.   Westland Insurance is kicking off their national partnership with Habitat for Humanity Canada with a $50,000 Home Sponsorship in support of Habitat for Humanity Saskatchewan’s Yorkton Chapter.

“Having a new partner like Westland Insurance means a lot to Habitat. It allows us to be successful in building safe, decent and affordable homes for our partner families,” said Denis Perrault, Habitat Saskatchewan CEO. “As Westland Insurance continues its growth across the country, we are grateful to see them giving back in the communities they serve.”

Habitat Yorkton Chapter’s ninth home is being constructed on Darlington Street East. Once completed, it will be home to Tania Fleury and her children. Tania will purchase the home at fair-market value, with a zero-down payment, interest free mortgage, set at 25 per cent of her gross annual income. She will also contribute 500 volunteer hours towards the building of her new home and is excited to become a homeowner.

“I’d like to honestly say that it has made a huge difference in our future,” Tania Fleury said. “We’re going to own a home!”

“Westland Insurance is so proud and excited to be the Home Sponsor for this build so that Tania and her boys can have a home of their own,” commented Cari Watson, SVP of Marketing and Customer Experience for Westland Insurance.
