Did you know that the number of Canadian families with both parents in the workforce is at an all-time high? A total 69% of Canadian families are currently dual-income households.1 Still, even with two salaries, many Canadians are living paycheque to paycheque. Even more disturbing is that more than half of employed Canadians report that it would be difficult to meet financial obligations if their paycheque was delayed by just a single week.2
With Canadian families already living on the brink of financial instability, what would happen if one those incomes suddenly disappeared due to an accident, critical illness or death from an accident? Could the rest of the family survive on just one paycheque and stay current with the mortgage and bills — or would sacrifices have to be made?
While accidents, illness and death from an accident are unpleasant to think about, affordable insurance can help you protect your loved ones.
