About Us

MortgageInsurance.ca was launched by Only Insurance Inc. in 2021 to address a serious deficiency in the life insurance world – too many Canadians are buying mortgage life insurance through their banks. We’re educating consumers that term life insurance provides superior insurance benefits and lower premiums as a way to insure their mortgage. And to make it easier, we’ve launched a fully online business model that allows Canadians to shop prices and apply completely online.
