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. 

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 business 

As a business owner, it's important to consider how you can protect your business. I’ve got the solutions that can help keep your business running smoothly if anything happens to you or your partners. 

 

Help your employees build more secure financial futures 

Benefits and retirement savings plans can help you attract and retain employees and give them resources to help improve their physical, financial and mental wellbeing. I can help you determine what kind of plan will work for your employees and your business.

Life Insurance

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.  

Get the best of both worlds – long-term life insurance and grow your wealth 

Participating life insurance provides lifelong insurance coverage and pays the person you choose a tax-free payment when you die. Your policy is guaranteed to grow in cash value as long as you make your payments.  

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. 

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.
