LS Insurance Company to become Humania Assurance Inc.

Saint-Hyacinthe, QC (Apr. 24, 2013) – LS Insurance Company was pleased to announce during the celebration to mark its 75th anniversary on April 17, 2013, that it had decided to change its name to “Humania Assurance Inc.”

This rejuvenation initiative was driven by a desire to give the company a more modern, bilingual name that better evokes the human values that guide the company and the health insurance products that characterize it.

Despite the change, the name “LS Mutual” will continue to be echoed within the financial group, as the mutual management corporation that owns 100% of the insurance company will retain its name, “LS Mutual Management.” The mutual management corporation groups the 100,000 or so mutual members who, effective May 1, 2013, will be partners of Humania Assurance Inc. That is when the company’s name change will become effective.
