Hugh C. Baker
We're proud to be celebrating 175 years with our Canadian colleagues. Since 1847, Canada Life has been helping and supporting individuals and their families.
Born out of the frustration of having to travel to New York to buy life insurance, Banker Hugh C. Baker became the company’s first policy holder in the library of the Mechanics Institute rooms in Hamilton, Ontario.
This was the start of Canada’s first life insurance Company.
The Canada Life Assurance Company has evolved and through times of change, times of uncertainty and times of celebration Canada Life has been here offering guidance along life’s many paths.
“ I’m delighted to wish on behalf of all our UK colleagues, a very happy 175th birthday to our Canadian family. It gives us a great sense of pride that we are not only related to the first Canadian Life Assurance company, but that together we have ambitious goals to continue to grow the business, focussing on serving our customers today and in the future.”
Canada Life crossed the water to the UK in 1903 to better serve its customers here. And we continue to do this today, with care and expertise at the heart of the business.
Our goal in a constantly evolving market, is to embrace change. Through innovation, our products and services, we aim to deliver the best outcomes possible for our 3.4 million customers, with the utmost integrity.
