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.
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.
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 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.
As a life insurance company, we have a close understanding of the health issues that most affect Canadians.
Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes, are the leading causes of mortality in Canada. Three out of five people over the age of twenty live with one of these diseases, and four out of five are at risk.
Our in the spirit of hope program is focused on giving to organizations dedicated to the prevention and elimination of these chronic conditions.
Proposals for 2016 are currently being evaluated, and selected charities will be posted in this space in the new year.

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.
