About:

Foresters is a leading international life insurance financial services provider with a unique history that spans more than 140 years. The organization was founded in 1874 and, in the spirit of fraternalism, aimed to provide life insurance for average, working families. Now in its third century, Foresters continues to champion the well-being of families through quality life insurance and investment products, unique member benefits and inspiring community activities. Over several decades, Foresters has led the way in pioneering many firsts in the North American insurance landscape. One of the organization’s first leaders was Dr. Oronhyatekha, a Mohawk who was one of Canada’s first Native doctors to practice western medicine. A man ahead of his time, Dr. Oronhyatekha championed the rights of women, children and minorities. During his tenure he insisted on admitting women as full members and provided benefits to the orphans of Foresters members. The new Foresters Historical Mosaic showcases our fraternal heritage through archival documents including handwritten proclamations, medals, certificates and other beautiful artifacts. And, our extensive collection of historical photographs and newspaper articles provides a virtual journey through time, capturing both important historical landmarks and the shifting needs and expectations of society. Through the industrial, cultural and digital revolutions, Foresters has been there to support families and communities. Foresters champions the well-being of families. This requires us to attend carefully to our own financial health. Foresters continues to maintain its strong financial position with total assets of almost $12 billion CDN, total funds under management of $28 billion CDN and a surplus of $1.9 billion CDN.

Phenomenal service & responsiveness. Nikki Walker was the most helpful and patient agents. She took
the time and consideration to answer every single question, explain the process, and accommodate my
busy work schedule. She even took the time to find a better quote for me after I initially had
chosen one that was more expensive and provided less of the items I need for my family. I am now a
client a client for life and can rest easy knowing god forbid something does happen to me, my family
is protected and will be working with a company that really can provide the simplified customer
service you would need during a difficult time.
