Critical Illness


Critical Illness doesn’t discriminate. It can strike anyone. Please review the statistics below:

80.2% of Canadians (20 – 59 years) have at least one of the following risk factors for heart disease or stroke: daily smoking, physical inactivity, being overweight, high blood pressure or diabetes.

Heart disease and stroke combined are the leading cause of hospitalization for men and women in Canada.

By age 70, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 4 men will be told they have heart problems.

50.0 % of Canadians with heart problems or stroke require help with daily activities.

On average 2,865 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer every week.

During their lifetimes 38 % of Canadian women and 44% of Canadian men will develop cancer.

One in 9 Canadian women are expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime.

One in 7 Canadian men will develop prostate cancer during his lifetime.

On average, 377 Canadians are diagnosed every week with colorectal cancer.

33% of informal caregivers report disruptions to their job, such as leaving early, using sick days or taking time off, in order to provide care and 44% reported they incurred extra expenses because of their responsibilities.

Since 1998 there has been a 23% increase in childhood cancer. Hidden costs (such as one parent staying home) can easily exceed $65,000 per year.

Thanks to some amazing advances in medical science, the chances of surviving a critical illness and recovering are higher than ever before, but so are your chances of not surviving the financial impact. And that’s where Critical Illness Insurance comes in.
