At CapriCMW, our team of insurance and risk management professionals have been proudly serving individuals, families and businesses in the equine industry across Canada for decades. We’re very grateful for the trust and confidence you’ve placed in us, and as a valued client, we want you to know about some exciting changes.
As of January 1, 2023, CapriCMW Insurance Services Ltd. will publicly become Acera Insurance Services, one of Canada’s largest domestic, independent, employee-controlled insurance brokerages.
What does this mean for you?
While our name has changed, our commitment to you remains the same. This means you can continue to expect the highest level of personal attention and service from the dedicated team that you’ve come to know and trust. You’ll be able to reach us just as you did before, and there will be no interruption in our operations or service to you.
The biggest difference you’ll notice in the short-term will be our change in name. In the coming months, we’ll keep you updated on important developments and all the ways we’ll be able to better serve you.
One immediate benefit that has come from this transition to Acera, is that we have entered into an agreement with a new insurer for various coverages related to your lifestyle with horses. Effective January 1, 2023, the $5,000,000 personal liability insurance that is provided to you as a member in good standing of your Provincial/Territorial Equine Association will be underwritten by Northbridge Insurance.
Your 2023 membership documents, if issued already by the PTSO, will be replaced with the new insurer information in the coming weeks. There is no gap or change in scope of the coverage through this transition.
We thank you for your ongoing support as a client and for the privilege to continue in service to you for years to come as Acera Insurance. If you have any questions, please reach out to me directly

What does this change mean for you as an OE member?
Not much! However, you will be receiving an email from OE next week with a new digital membership card with the updated insurance name, logo, and liability insurance underwriter, Northbridge Insurance on the back of the card. Your card will also be updated in your membership profile.
Should you have further questions about this rebrand or how it affects you, please reach out to Mike King at Acera Insurance directly.
