Critical Illness

Critical illness insurance is a complementary coverage to life insurance and disability insurance. It is intended to help you overcome the large, one-time expenses that may be associated with a significant illness.

The statistics are not reassuring, consider the following:

  • One in three Canadians will develop a life-threatening cancer;
  • One in two heart attack victims are under 65 years old;
  • Each year, 50,000 Canadians suffer a stroke. Of all stroke victims, 75% will be left with a disability.

Facing a critical illness can be one of the most difficult challenges in life. There is so much to consider—making decisions about your care, remaining financially stable, meeting your family’s day-to-day needs, coping with the emotional stress and more.

Critical illness insurance helps paying costs associated with life-altering illnesses. If you become sick with an illness covered by your policy and survive the waiting period, you receive a lump sum cash payment. You can use this benefit payment to supplement your health insurance plan and any group disability coverage you may have to reduce your financial burden, maintain your independence, access cutting-edge medical services and assist in your recovery any way you choose.
