Industry Partners

Industry partners are a critical stakeholder group, and their involvement is essential for Assuris to fulfill its mission of protecting Canadian life and health insurance policyholders. Our goal is to build and develop mutually beneficial relationships and leverage opportunities to work together, including joint initiatives. Maintaining open lines of communication with these partners fosters trust and strengthens these relationships over time, and regular information exchange and collaboration facilitate a deeper understanding of the broader landscape. By maintaining effective communication, we also ensure that our partners are willing to work effectively in a crisis and collaborate on risk mitigation strategies.

The collective strength of the protections offered to Canadian financial services consumers provides all Canadians with added confidence and peace of mind when planning a future for themselves and their loved ones.
