Assuris – Protecting your life insurance

Assuris is the not for profit organization that protects Canadian policyholders if their life insurance company should fail.
Our role is to protect policyholders by minimizing the loss of benefits and ensuring a quick transfer of their policies to a solvent company, where their protected benefits will continue.
Every life insurance company authorized to sell insurance policies in Canada is required, by the federal, provincial and territorial regulators, to become a member of Assuris.
