Who we are

At Great-West Life, of which Canada Life is a subsidiary, we’re focused on improving the financial, physical and mental well-being of Canadians.

Our customers across Canada trust us to provide for their financial security needs and to deliver on the promises we make.

That trust is built on the dedication, skill and energy of our employees and advisors and their commitment to our customers and to our communities.

Whether handling policy claims, growing and protecting clients’ retirement and investment savings, providing workplace mental health support for all employers or helping build stronger communities by investing in community projects, we are committed to putting the customer first in all that we do.
