The Canada and States Mennonite Insurance Association originated in the Molotschna and Chortitza colonies of Russia, and was brought to Manitoba in 1874. It was joined by Mennonites in the Dakotas, Minnesota, Montana, and Nebraska as they settled there. The Middle West was in the 1950s the area of responsibility although it was expanding into other states and joining with other Mennonite organizations. It offered insurance against fire, storm, hail, and the natural catastrophes. Movable and immovable property were insured. Premiums were gauged according to losses. In 1953 an insured risk of $29 million was carried. Operated on Christian principles, it adhered to the traditional practice of assisting a "brother in need."
