Mortgage Protection Plan - Protecting your assets
No one should gamble with their home. Don't leave your family unprotected.

The Mortgage Protection Plan

Your home is not only your largest single investment, but it is also where you have chosen to raise your family. If your mortgage is not protected, you risk losing everything you have worked so hard for. The simple truth is that illness or death can happen to anyone of any age at any time. In fact,

  • 44% of mortgage insurance claims have made within the first 2-years of the mortgage (Source: Over 10 years of MPP claims data).
  • 11.4% of working age Canadians, suffer from a form of disability with 43% of those disabilities severe or very severe.

With today's high cost of living, taxes and mortgage payments, it's more difficult to save than every before. An unexpected death or illness can be financially devastating for your family.

The Mortgage Protection Plan was created as an affordable, simple and convenient solution. It allows you to protect your investment right away - at the same time you arrange for your Mortgage. There is no reason to gamble - you can insurance your mortgage now and you can cancel at any time. We'll even refund all your premiums if you find a better solution within out 60-day guarantee period (even if you just change your mind).

More Affordable Than You Think

The Mortgage Protection Plan was designed to be more affordable than you think! In fact, a typical couple can save 300% over a very competitive term life product. Unlike terms life products, Mortgage Protection Plan premiums do not increase automatically as you get older.

Mortgage Protection vs. Very Competitive Term Life

In this case, Mortgage Protection Plan starts out being slightly more expensive. However, over the 25-year mortgage term the cost is three times less expensive. Not only is it 33% cheaper per dollar of coverage, but the overall coverage is designed to reduce as the balance of your mortgage declines. So you don't pay for any wasted coverage.
