Get lifelong coverage with permanent life insurance

A permanent life insurance plan gives you much more than temporary plans do. Some products provide tax-advantaged savings which can complement traditional retirement plans, such as RRSPs. While term insurance has a set time length and premiums increase with each renewal, permanent insurance is good for a lifetime with guaranteed premiums.

We've designed permanent life insurance plans that provide options and choices to meet your unique needs.

Whole Life Suite

Whole Life is for those who want lifetime coverage with built-in savings, the comfort of guaranteed premiums and the ability to earn dividends. Whole Life covers all permanent insurance needs, including funeral costs, estate settlement costs, paying debt, and any other financial need. Features include: 

  • Guaranteed cash values  that can provide you with access to the funds through partial surrenders and policy loans
  • Policy dividends (not guaranteed), which allow you to share profits based on the participating account performance and are payable after the first policy anniversary
  • Automatic premium loans, where accumulated cash values can keep your policy in force if you are unable to pay premiums for a period of time
  • An option to pay premiums for the life of the policy, for 20 years, or for 10 years
  • Children’s coverage with our Whole Life – Head Start™ policies to ensure your loved one is covered for life
  • Coverage starts at $25,000 and is available between the ages of 0 to 80

Universal Life Suite

Universal Life provides you with additional ways to manage your financial portfolio now and into retirement. Universal Life plans protect your wealth, allow savings to grow in a tax-deferred environment*, and provide for your beneficiaries in the event of your death.

We know everyone wants to enjoy maximum flexibility in coverage options. Universal Life provides you and your family with that flexibility. These are just a few of the benefits you’ll enjoy with a Universal Life policy:

  • Coverage that adapts as your life changes
  • Savings growth in tax-advantaged* accounts
  • Multiple investment accounts tailored to your risk profile
  • Access to cash accrued within your policy when you want it


“Premium holidays” available when you need them

There may be times you need to reduce your monthly expenses for a while. Unanticipated costs like car repairs or home renovations can strain your budget, but there’s no need to worry. Your Universal Life policy allows you to take an occasional break from paying premiums when necessary, as long as you have enough funds in your policy to cover your monthly insurance charges.

We have different plans in the Universal Life Suite. Each is designed to address the needs of a specific life stage, and we offer a plan for Business owners. Your Financial Advisor will work with you to set up the best plan for you.
