This policy statement applies to our life insurance operations in Canada, mainly to our process for exchanging information with the MIB, Inc., as necessary to issue policies and process claims. This statement may be relevant to you regardless of how you apply for insurance (online, paper application, over the phone, etc.).
This notice is meant to address our obligations under rules established by the MIB, Inc.

On your request, MIB will arrange for disclosure to you of any information it may have in your file on you.
