About us

It is important to know who you are dealing with, particularly when choosing something as important as your life insurance.

Founded in 1847, Canada Life was Canada’s first domestic life insurance company.

Today, Canada Life provides insurance and wealth management products and services in Canada and internationally, primarily in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man, Ireland and Germany.

Canada Life offers a broad range of life and health insurance and wealth management products and services for individuals, families and business owners.

Canada Life is a subsidiary of The Great-West Life Assurance Company. Together, Canada Life, London Life and Great-West Life serve the financial security needs of more than 12 million people across Canada.

In the community

Energy, leadership and citizenship are the heart of our organization, building connections with Canadians through the value we deliver.

With financial contributions and the volunteer involvement of our staff and distribution associates, our support helps to build stronger communities across this country.

Over the past two decades, and as an Imagine Caring Company founding member, Canada Life, London Life and Great-West Life have contributed more than $10 million last year to non-profit, charitable and community organizations.

In June, Great-West Life announced that it will be a Premier Sponsor of the 2017 Canada Summer Games.

Our commitment will support the recruitment, training and accreditation for the 6,000 volunteers who will help make the Games a success, said Stefan Kristjanson, President and COO of Great-West Life.

Also, in its ongoing efforts to foster literacy in Canada, the winners of the Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life Literacy Innovation Award were announced in August, recognizing five organizations developing and implementing innovative adult literacy and essential skills programs in their communities.
