Disability Insurance

Disability Insurance provides a monthly income in the event you are incapacitated, and incapable of working due to an injury or illness. Often called “Income Replacement Insurance”, this coverage is important for self-employed individuals.

Group Benefit Coverage

Group Insurance is an insurance plan that protects a group of people's financial security in one or more ways, such as offering low-cost life insurance or a dental plan for the self-employed. A group can comprise (or “be composed of”) members of an association, a company's employees, or professionals in a group such as lawyers or doctors.

Reduce Business Risk

Start-up firms and smaller companies are especially vulnerable to potentially devastating financial risk because they often lack big company sophistication and in-house risk-control expertise.


Buy-Sell Agreements Protect Your Team

Whether you own a partnership or corporation, we can help you set up a buy-sell agreement while you are alive and capable of doing so.

Protect Your Team Players

We will help you value your company and set up the right Buy-Sell Agreement to meet Canada Revenue Agency's (CRA) standards.

We can determine if the company has the cash flow or a large amount of money available to fund the buy-out of the deceased or disabled owner. If not, permanent life insurance can be used to fund a buy-sell agreement as it can pay a large amount of tax-free capital at the right time -- at the decease of the business owner.

We will meet with your lawyer and the buyers' lawyers. After the agreement is drafted, all parties will review it to their satisfaction, and then sign it to make it legal. It is suggested that the life insurance be purchased first to ensure that one is insurable. Even where there is a medical problem, in most cases, there is an insurer willing to design a policy to suit the risk, based on the health of the respective individual.
