Phase

  • PHASE 1 Board Decision

     

    • Board decision

      The Economical Board of Directors initiates the demutualization process on November 3, 2015.

  • PHASE 2 Current Phase

     

    • First special meeting

      Eligible mutual policyholders voted in favour to negotiate with eligible non-mutual policyholders on allocation of benefits on December 14, 2015.

  • PHASE 3 Current Phase

     

    • Policyholder committees

      On June 26, 2018, Economical announced it had submitted its conversion plan, a detailed document that outlines how the company will demutualize, to its principle regulator. The conversion plan includes the allocation of financial benefits negotiated by the policyholder committees. The conversion plan will remain confidential during the review, after which the demutualization process will move to Phase 4a.

  • PHASE 4a Second special meeting

     

    • Second special meeting

      Eligible mutual policyholders vote on changing the bylaws of Economical at the second special meeting in order to continue the process. The bylaw change allows eligible non-mutual policyholders to vote on the conversion plan.

  • PHASE 4b Third special meeting

     

    • Third special meeting

      The conversion plan is sent to all eligible policyholders, who vote together to approve it at the third special meeting. If this vote passes, Economical can then apply to the Minister of Finance to demutualize. This vote and special meeting will likely happen four to five months after the vote in Phase 4a is complete.

      If this vote passes, Economical will then apply to the Minister of Finance for approval to demutualize. After receiving letters patent of conversion from the Minister, Economical will begin the initial public offering process.

Learn About Demutualization

Economical Mutual Insurance Company ("Economical") is currently a mutual company. Unlike most companies, it does not have shareholders who own the company.

After over 145 years as a mutual company, Economical has decided to change. We have begun a process to become a widely-held company with common shares. This process is called a demutualization. After demutualization, Economical intends to list our shares on a public stock exchange.

Demutualization is an exciting opportunity to unlock the potential of Economical - allowing it to continue its pursuit of innovation, growth, and exceptional service.

Demutualization is also a unique opportunity for "eligible policyholders" to participate in this change and get financial benefits from it. As part of demutualization, eligible policyholders may receive financial benefits such as cash or shares in Economical.

Imagine, just by being a loyal customer of Economical, you could possibly become one of its new shareholders.
