Assuris – Protecting Your Life Insurance Benefits
Assuris is the not-for-profit corporation that protects Canadian policyholders against loss of benefits due to the financial failure of a member company. All life insurance companies authorized to sell insurance policies in Canada are required, by the federal, provincial and territorial regulators, to become members.

Assuris is wide ranging and covers life Insurance products including the following.
There are specific limits for each item but here is a couple examples.

While we would hope that we do not have a financial failure of a life insurance company, it give’s peace of mind that you would be protected, if it were to occur. Please contact me if you have further questions.
