Affordable coverage when you need it 

Term life insurance helps you meet short-term protection needs over a set period of time. It’s ideal if you’re looking for a cost-efficient way to cover large debt for a specific term – for example, a mortgage. 

Protection for life  

Permanent life insurance provides guaranteed, lifelong coverage that protects the people you care about. It offers cash values that can grow over time to either increase the value of your death benefit or help pay for future goals like an education fund, starting a new business or supplementing your retirement income. There are two types of permanent life insurance: participating life insurance and universal life insurance.  

Keeping you and your loved ones healthy, year-round 

As Canadians, we’re fortunate to have public healthcare coverage – but that doesn’t mean your provincial healthcare plan provides all the coverage you need. Health and dental insurance can help pay for prescription drugs, dental, hospital, vision, paramedical and ambulance services. Coverage is similar to a group benefits plan that an employer may offer and is a great option if you’re retiring, self-employed or not eligible for group benefits. 

Protect your paycheque 

Disability insurance works when you can’t. It can give you tax-free monthly income to help pay expenses if an illness or accident stops you from working. Not all disabilities are so easily recognized. Chronic pain or a mental health issue can also qualify as a disability. 

Help your kids get a great education 

Registered education savings plans (RESPs) offer an effective, tax-free way to maximize the money available to your children or grandchildren when they enrol in a full-time post-secondary program. Parents, grandparents, other family members and friends can open an RESP for a child. As the cost of post-secondary education continues to rise, it’s becoming even more important to start saving early for their future education. 

Coverage when it counts

Critical illness insurance allows you to focus on your recovery knowing you have the money to help with your expenses if you're diagnosed with a serious illness. You’ll get a one-time, tax-free payment you can use for whatever you need. Through your coverage, you can also connect with healthcare specialists. 

Protect your wealth as it grows 

Segregated funds invest in a variety of stocks and bonds. They’re different than mutual funds. They offer unique protection features that are only available through insurance companies. They’re a great way to save for your retirement and investment goals. 

A flexible way to invest your money 

Mutual funds allow you to invest in a portfolio of assets that are managed by professionals. They let you diversify your portfolio more widely than you may be able to do when investing in individual stocks and bonds on your own, and together we can select a fund that gives you the right balance of risk and reward for your financial plan. 

 

Save for retirement 

Registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) are still one of the most popular ways to save for your retirement. Contributions are tax deductible and taxes are deferred until you withdraw your money. 

Grow your money tax-free 

With a tax-free savings account (TFSA), you don’t pay tax on any money earned or withdrawn. You can contribute to a TFSA at any time, and your unused contribution room is carried forward each year. Use these savings for education, a down payment on a home or other large expenses.
