Canada Life


Who we are

Canada Life looks after the retirement, investment and protection needs of individuals, families and companies. We help to build better futures. There can be no greater priority than the commitment and responsibility towards all our customers. At Canada Life we adhere to the same principles as when we were formed in 1847: integrity, consistency and experience.

Our heritage is important to us. Our parent company, Great-West Lifeco, is a financially strong, stable, modern global organisation. The oldest Canadian life assurance company, Great-West Lifeco traces its foundation back to 1847 - that is more than 170 years of helping customers plan for the future.

Since 1903 we have operated in the United Kingdom where we have hundreds of respected and supported staff all geared to doing the right thing for customers. As well as Canada, Europe and the United States and other countries we also work through branch operations and subsidiary companies.

In January 2018 we acquired Retirement Advantage, a company that helps those who are in, at, or approaching retirement with a range of simple, secure and flexible products to suit their needs. With a history stretching back more than 160 years, we share an emphasis on providing outstanding customer service. Together, we are well positioned to build on our combined skills and experience to become a leader in the broader retirement market.

What we do

As specialists in retirement, investment and protection we provide a range of products to the markets, including.

  • Home Finance - our range of mortgages allow property owners the opportunity to release cash from their property without giving up ownership. Our mortgages have been designed with your customers in mind, and can be tailored to suit their individual needs. Our lifetime mortgage products can be secured on your customer's main residence or second home, and offer flexibility and certainty. Our later life Buy-to-Let mortgages allow your landlord customers to release equity from their Buy-to-Let property while keeping their portfolio intact; and
  • The Retirement Account - which combines a Guaranteed Annuity, Pension Savings and Pension Drawdown, all held within a single tax-advantaged wrapper written under Pension Drawdown rules providing certainty, flexibility and simplicity - helping retirees manage pension investments and benefits in a tax efficient way.
