Ontario or BC?
Please remember the HST

On July 1, your province will join Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland in harmonizing provincial sales tax with the GST.

This is just a friendly reminder that as of July 1, 2010 on all final bonds issued please include the HST in the contract price when calculating premiums and bond penalties.

If you have any questions about our HST policy (or anything else), please contact us. Your feedback is invaluable!

Double Congratulations to Lex Fruman

Western Surety is proud that our own Lex Fruman, Commercial Surety Underwriter in Regina, placed as a Finalist in the 2010 Miss Saskatchewan Pageant. Lex is also getting married this summer and — yes — she hasn't ruled out pursuing the Mrs. Saskatchewan crown next year. Lex is an honours graduate of the University of Regina, Paul Hill School of Business.

Congratulations, Lex!
