Critical Illiness


Critical Illness – What Will You Do?

What will happen to you and your family if one of you has cancer, or a heart attack, or a stroke?

Every Canadian has a 1 in 3 chance of contracting one of the 25 Conditions covered by a Critical Illness plan. For couples, there is a 56% chance that one of you will be diagnosed with one of these conditions in your lifetime.

Critical Illness insurance provides a lump sum payment if you are diagnosed with one of the covered conditions. You can use the money as you wish.

Being sick can devastate a family’s finances. Being unable to make mortgage payments, or to afford the costs of travel and time off work for treatment. Use the money to take time off to care for your loved one, or to travel to obtain treatment sooner outside your own region. From the costs of medicine and treatment, to travel, specialist and home accommodations, treating and recovering from an illness can have a devastating financial impact. Plus, if you’re unable to work during your recovery, the impact is even greater.
