Canada Life - did you know?

July 29, 2014

Your Sheridan College Alumni Association takes care selecting the companies we work with to offer benefits and services to our graduates and their spouses. We look for companies that will provide good value and service as well as organizations that give back to the communities they work in.

Canada Life has been selected by Sheridan College to provide life insurance to our alumni at low group rates. Founded in 1847, Canada Life was Canada’s first domestic life insurance company. But did you know that Canada Life has been supporting the preservation of wildlife since 1983? That’s when the company began efforts to protect the prairie nesting grounds of the white pelican – then the company symbol – and undertook a relationship with the World Wildlife Fund that is still ongoing.

Together with Great-West Life and London Life, Canada Life supports the principles of corporate citizenship and benchmarks for community investment established by Imagine Canada.

For over two decades, and as an Imagine Caring Company founding member, Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life have contributed more than $151 million to charities and non-profit organizations to help build stronger communities.

In 2013 alone, the companies donated $11.8 million to more than 900 distinct initiatives across Canada, spanning arts and culture, community development, education, health and wellness and social services.

For the complete story, see the company’s 2013 Public Accountability Statement on Canada Life’s corporate website.

It is important to know the company you are dealing with particularly when choosing something as important as your life insurance coverage.
