Insurance

It can be used to provide financial support in the event of a death, injury, or illness

but it has evolved to be part of a philanthropic plan, or to provide income in retirement,

and much more.

Life Insurance

Life insurance provides whomever you choose with a one-time, tax-free payment when you die. It has evolved over the years and can accommodate virtually everyone’s needs, whether it is for a specific period of time, or to create intergenerational wealth or retirement income, and some even provide benefits such as gym memberships and apple watches.

Few questions to ask yourself when thinking about life insurance:

  • Do you need insurance to protect your family or do you need it to protect your business?
  • Do you need it for a set period of time or do you need it to cover you for your entire life?
  • Do you have any medical conditions or have you been declined for insurance in the past?

We explore all the different types of insurance including term, participating, universal life, and guaranteed life insurance as well as the various companies who offer it. 

Disability Insurance

Most of us don’t think of our income as our single biggest asset — but it is. Disability insurance is designed to protect your income; it works when you can’t. It replaces a portion of your income if you become disabled and are unable to earn an income due to an accident or illness. 

Disability insurance isn’t just for the self employed – it is an important aspect of a buy-sell agreement or to protect your business if a key person were unable to work.

We work with you to tailor a policy, considering potential risks you face at work and any health concerns.

Critical Illness Insurance

Medical advances have dramatically improved the survival rates of people who suffer critical illnesses such as cancer, stroke, and heart attacks.  Recovery may come with a significant financial cost that impacts both you and the people close to you. A critical illness policy would provide you with a tax-free lump sum cash payment where you choose how to spend the money, such as reducing debt, replacing lost income while you take time off work to cope with your illness, hiring additional help at home, pay for new medical treatments not covered under the provincial health plans. We will help you find the right coverage for you.

Health & Dental Insurance

Personal health insurance (also known as individual health and dental insurance) is coverage that can help Canadians or those living in Canada cover the cost of preventive care or medical bills due to an illness. It can help pay for several health-related expenses, including:

  • prescription drugs to treat a chronic or serious health condition,

  • vision-care needs such as eye exams and prescription glasses,
  • emergency travel medical services when you travel to another country,
  • physiotherapy to help with injury recovery, and
  • medical equipment to help with your mobility.

Group Health (also known as employer benefits) is similar to the personal health insurance but the employer pays a miniumum of 50% of the premium.  The landscape for coverage vast but if you are a small business owner, the If you are a small business owner, we can help you find the right plan that is flexible to your needs and yet create the stability of premimums, year over year.

  • look for a reputable insurer
  • get a rough idea of the coverage amount you need
  • determine the options and riders that are available and which are best for you

You can speak to a licensed life insurance advisor to learn more about your options. 

Women tend to live longer than men, so life insurance may cost less. 

Generally, insurance is less expensive when you’re younger.

Family history, chronic diseases and lifestyle can increase costs.

If you have a dangerous job or participate in high risk activities, your insurance costs can be higher.

The type of policy you select will impact the premium you will be required to pay.
