Adding a Dependent

Who can be added as a dependent on your group insurance?

  • Your dependent can be your partner and child
  • You can usually only add dependents to your plan if a major life event occurs, like marriage, birth of child, one year living together, partner’s coverage cancelled, etc.
  • The bi-weekly dedication for family coverage is $75/pay.

 To switch to family coverage, complete the CANADA LIFE CHANGE FORM and email it to for processing.
