Disability insurance helps protect your income and business if you become disabled and can’t work. With different products available for full-time, part-time or home-based workers, disability insurance is the perfect solution for professionals, business owners, business executives and other employed Canadians.  An individual disability insurance plan can help you meet your income requirements so you can concentrate on recovering and returning to an active life.

Whether you need to secure your main source of income or supplement the coverage you receive from your employer or an association, disability insurance can help by providing a comprehensive and portable plan you can rely on throughout your working years.

For more information on disability insurance, please contact us.


Critical Illness Insurance

Critical illness insurance helps cover the unexpected costs and potential loss of income associated with a serious illness. From the additional costs associated with medicine and treatment, to travel, home care and specific accommodations if needed, treating and recovering from an illness can have a devastating financial impact. Plus, if you’re unable to work during your recovery, the impact is even greater.

With critical illness insurance, if you become sick with one of the covered conditions covered by your policy and survive the waiting period, you receive a cash benefit. You can then use the funds as you wish.
