For most Canadians, their home will likely be the biggest purchase they’ll ever make. That’s why it’s so important to protect their investment with products like mortgage insurance and term insurance.

Many lenders will offer to sell mortgage insurance (life insurance on the mortgage) right at the time of settling on the mortgage. While this is convenient, term life insurance is another option to help ensure the mortgage is paid off. It’s a good idea consider which type of protection is the best fit.
