The Canadian Association of Financial Institutions in Insurance (CAFII) announced April 30 that Canada Life has joined the association as a new member.
CAFII also announced that David Fear, Senior Vice-President, Creditor Insurance at Canada Life, has been appointed to CAFII’s Board of Directors.
“We are pleased to welcome Canada Life as a CAFII member,” said Peter McCarthy, Chair of the CAFII Board. “We are pleased Mr. Fear is joining our Board, and look forward to the contributions he and his colleagues at Canada Life will make in helping our Association fulfill its mission.”
“As Canada’s first domestic life insurance company, we are pleased to join many of our industry peers within CAFII,” said Mr. Fear. “We look forward to working together to advance the interests of Canadians.”
CAFII was established in 1997 to create a voice for financial institutions involved in selling insurance through a variety of distribution channels. Its members offer travel, life, health, property and casualty, and creditor’s group insurance across Canada. “In particular, creditor’s group insurance and travel insurance are the product lines of primary focus for CAFII, along with alternate, direct distribution channels,” says the organization.
CAFII announced April 16 that Manulife has also joined the organization.
