Business Owners Insurance

Partnership Insurance, Buy Sell Insurance, or Key Person Insurance all refer to needs of a business. It could be covering off the buy-out of a business partner, a line of credit, the bills you must pay, your mortgage or maybe it’s to make sure that the family members who aren’t involved in the business are looked after. If you own a business, you likely have a need for one or more of these policies.

Critical Illness Insurance
Critical Illness Insurance has quickly become one of the most popular types of living benefits policies available. It pays a lump sum to the insured in the event of a covered serious illness. It can be purchased with a return of premium option. It is typically used to replace income in the short term and give you the means to accommodate care or a course of treatment wherever you may choose – how you allocate the funds is up to you.
Disability Insurance
Disability Insurance pays some or all of a worker's income if that worker becomes disabled and is unable to work at his or her job. According to Statistics Canada, at least one out of every three Canadians will become disabled for longer than 90 days at some point during their working career. This disability can come from accidents or injuries on the job, as well as from other debilitating illnesses such as cancer or a heart attack. Disability Insurance can reimburse disabled workers for some of the income they lose while recovering from illnesses and injuries.
Group Health Benefits
Also known as Group Insurance or Employee Benefits. Employers can sponsor various health benefits which are “grouped” together to improve pricing and eligibility. Group health plans can be offered as traditional insured programs, self-insured programs and/or Health Spending Accounts. 
Long Term Care Insurance

Long Term Care Insurance helps cover costs associated with care requirements whether those services are administered in a facility or in a home care setting. Often these services are not completely covered by provincial health care programs in which case Long Term Care insurance can help to offset the short fall.

Long Term Care insurance may be right for you if:

  • You are interested in staying in your own home for as long as possible if health changes make ongoing care assistance necessary
  • You are concerned your savings might not last for your lifetime should you need to cover the costs of additional care as you age
  • You want the financial freedom to choose the type and level of care that’s right for you if you suffer a debilitating illness or accident, or should you need substantial care as you age
  • You simply want to protect your wealth from eroding due to the cost of care
Mortgage Insurance

Life insurance purchased for the use of mortgage protection is a better bet for new homeowners than traditional mortgage insurance, where the bank is the beneficiary. With the typical bank mortgage insurance, you pay a set premium, however since the volume of your mortgage is continually being reduced, your payout is less than the original purchase. Whereas with a life policy, the benefit level remains constant with every payment and the bank is not designated as your beneficiary.
