At Roughley Insurance we pride ourselves on community involvement.
Giving back to our community that has given us so much is at the forefront of our organization’s values.

Staff Charitable Hours
We are committed to making a difference in the community in which we work and live. We encourage staff to get involved in the community and provide them time to be able to make a difference. We are currently partnering with Canadian Blood Services, as well looking for new opportunities to give back to our community we care deeply about.
Backpacks for Success
For over 10 years, Roughley Insurance Brokers Ltd. has made a strong effort to ensure students who are in need within the community receive a new backpack filled with supplies for the upcoming school year. Employees Lisa Storey and Wanda Smith spearhead this initiative each year, committing their own time and resources to donate an exceptional amount of school supplies for children in need. Roughley Insurance matches the donations made by the staff.
Roughley participates in events throughout the year to help Simcoe Hall Settlement House is anyway possible. Some of the programs we run are jean weeks to raise money and holiday toy donations. Staff often donate their own time and money towards this organization because of the impact that it has had on helping those who need it most throughout our community.
CIBC Run for the Cure
This year, staff from Roughley Insurance participated in the CIBC Run for the Cure. A cause that is very close to our hearts, we are so proud to contribute to working towards a cure.
