Formerly Island Savings Insurance

We are pleased to inform you that, effective October 1, 2019 Island Savings Insurance (A division of First West Insurance Services) has become part of Westland Insurance Group Ltd.

Joining Westland Insurance Group Ltd. will allow us to provide even more to our clients. While you will continue to deal with the same great staff and receive the same personalized service you have come to expect from Island Savings Insurance, we will now have expanded capacity, broader underwriting capabilities and improved claims support.


Payment Plan Changes

Policies previously enrolled on the First West Smart Pay payment plan will be amended to Westland’s monthly payment plan on renewal. The Westland monthly payment plan has no application fee, and a low administrative fee of 5% of your policy premium. This is lower than the Smart Pay plan. Monthly withdrawals will now show as “Westland Insurance” on  bank statements.
