Critical Illness Insurance

Critical Illness Insurance

Canada’s Leading Insurance Marketplace

Insurance that helps you focus on getting better, and Help protect your lifestyle

Critical illness insurance can give you financial security and valuable support services to help cope during a challenging time.  Focus on your recovery knowing that you have money to help with your expenses if you’re diagnosed with a serious illness.


Critical illness can give you a tax-free payment if you’re diagnosed with a serious condition. Your contract will define which conditions you’re covered for, but some examples include cancer, heart attack or stroke.


A Critical Illness insurance product pays a lump sum benefit if the insured is diagnosed with one of up to 25 covered conditions and outlives the survival period specified in the contract. This product is for people who want a financial resource to help them cover additional expenses linked to recovery from a critical illness, such as time off work, traveling to receive treatments, home care, renovations, and the cost of treatments not covered by public health insurance.


You might already know someone who has benefited from the protection of Critical Illness insurance. It is also possible that you have not heard much about Critical Illness insurance.  Either way, in the event of a catastrophic medical emergency, such as cancer, leukemia, a heart attack, stroke, or a seizure and much more, critical illness insurance may be your sole means of avoiding financial disaster.

How Does Critical Illness Insurance Work?

If you are diagnosed with one of the policy-covered conditions, Critical Illness coverage will help you eliminate the need to sacrifice savings. The tax-free claim can be used for costs such as medication, recovery, mortgage, rent, or house modifications, such as wheelchair accessibility. In fact this money can be used for anything. The odds of Getting Cancer in Canada is One out of Two.

  • Choose the coverage amount you want.
  • Pay your premium.
  • File a claim if you’re diagnosed with a critical illness.
  • Receive your payment. You may have to wait a set period of time depending on your condition.

Critical Illness insurance coverage eliminates the need to accumulate credit card charges or reduce retirement savings. The funds can be used for non-medical expenses (such as transportation and child care costs) or any expense that may result from illness. The policyholder will receive a lump sum payment after the insured has outlived the standard 30 day waiting period. A variety of factors influence policy price, including: the quantity and scope of coverage, the policyholder’s sex, age, term, and wellness.
