I had no idea that there were so many different ways to use life insurance in Canada, I just assumed the funds would just be sitting there. Great info, this has definitely shed some light on what my life insurance can do for me, especially since i have been paying into it for so long. This is true, most of the life insurance companies in Canada dont do a very good job at letting the consumer know the various ways that life insurance can be used.
