Company information

The people, products and service that make up ivari have stood the test of time and have been around for over 80 years in the Canadian marketplace. Through our commitment to always being approachable and transparent in everything we do, we are dedicated to starting a fresh, new conversation about insurance. And we will stand by our word.


We began over eighty years ago and, in 2015, we were acquired by Wilton Re. Wilton Re is a life (re) insurance company specializing in the acquisition and management of life and annuity businesses as well as with assisting companies with product development, underwriting and new business strategies designed to serve the middle market.

Charitable giving

At ivari, we give back to help make positive changes for our communities and the people we share them with. Our charitable giving takes several forms.

United Way Centraide Canada

Our long-standing partnership with the United Way Centraide Canada allows us to give back to organizations working to make a difference in the communities where we live and work. The funds raised by employees during our annual fundraising campaign are matched dollar-for-dollar by ivari, doubling our impact. We also hold events throughout the year to raise additional funds for our local United Way chapters.

ivari’s Healthy Steps Program

As a life insurance company, we have a close understanding of what it takes for people to lead long and healthy lives. It takes practicing healthy habits like eating well, and getting enough exercise – habits that are best formed when they’re learned as children.

That’s why ivari is committed to supporting programs that help give children and teens the knowledge and preparation they need to get a head start to lifelong healthy living.

Through ivari’s Healthy Steps Program, we support organizations that help teach young people skills that empower them to develop healthy habits, particularly in areas such as active living, healthy eating and health education.

Applications for our 2017 funding cycle are currently being accepted.

Employee giving and volunteering

ivari supports employees who donate their money or time to causes they care about.

We match employee donations to registered charities and provide employees with paid time off to volunteer.

President’s message

Welcome to ivari. With the ivari brand, we’re bringing a promise to you, our customer, that we will strive to provide you with a more authentic and personable experience than you’ve come to expect from a life insurance provider. The dots over ivari are in the form of quotation marks for a reason – they represent what we see as the power of conversation to take the fear out of making decisions about life insurance and replace it with confidence. We look forward to the conversations we will have with you – advisors, individuals, families. Let’s talk. We’re always happy to hear from you.
