About Us

Assuris is an independent not for profit, industry-funded compensation organization founded in 1990. Our mission is to protect policyholders if their life insurance company fails.

Every life insurance company in Canada is required by the federal, provincial and territorial regulators, to become a member of Assuris. Click here for a complete list of member companies.

Assuris is designated by the federal Minister of Finance under the Insurance Companies Act of Canada. Assuris is recognized by the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) as the compensation body whose members are Quebec-chartered life insurers.
