Critical Illness

As a physician you understand the reality of a critical illness. You know the people behind the numbers:

  • 40% of Canadian women and 45% of men will develop cancer.   
  • There are an estimated 70,000 heart attacks each year in Canada.    
  • About 300,000 Canadians are living with the effects of stroke.
Surviving a critical illness can be quite costly. As a physician, you’ve likely witnessed the tremendous strain of coping with a serious illness like cancer, heart attack or stroke. But you also know that advances in medical care mean more and more people survive.

A lump-sum tax-free payment gives you the ability to focus on and fund your recovery without worrying about managing your expenses and maintaining your family’s lifestyle.

Your money, your choices.

Your lump sum payment gives you the freedom and flexibility to use the funds as you see fit. For example, you can use the money for:


  • Out-of-country treatment, travel and expenses
  • Experimental treatment
  • Medical equipment; home modification
  • Private nursing or personal support worker
  • Spouse’s reduced or lost income
  • Mortgage or other debts
