Winnipeg, MB, October 30, 2023… Today, The Canada Life Assurance Company (Canada Life) announced that Monique Maynard, Executive Vice-President, Chief Actuary Canada and President, Quebec Affairs, has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Most Powerful Women by the Women's Executive Network (WXN).

"Monique is an exceptional leader who has been instrumental to our company’s success and is a continued force for good in her community,” said Jeff Macoun, President and Chief Operating Officer, Canada Life. "This recognition spotlights the deep impact Monique makes every day – for our people, our customers and our communities. On behalf of our entire organization, I'd like to congratulate Monique on this tremendous honour."

Throughout her over 35-year career with Canada Life, Monique has been driven by excellence, delivering on promises to be a strong leader and contributor.

In addition to her volunteer and charitable activities, Monique embraces opportunities to mentor and help raise up women in the community, the industry and within Canada Life.
