Life Insurance Plan

HEB Manitoba offers Personal Life Insurance, Family Life Insurance and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance to eligible healthcare employees in Manitoba.

In addition to the coverage offered to active eligible employees, we offer post-retirement insurance to members who are retiring or members who are turning 71 years old, whichever is earlier. Some members may also qualify for a Paid-up Life Insurance Policy at retirement.

Key highlights of the Life Insurance Plan:

  • Coverage is effective as of the date of employment in an eligible position, or the date employment status changes from casual to full-time or part-time,
  • Maximum benefit of $1,000,000 for Personal Life Insurance (Basic plus Optional units),
  • Up to four units of Optional coverage available,
  • Matching AD&D coverage (equal to Basic plus Optional units) is provided at no additional cost,
  • Family coverage maximum benefits of $100,000 (spouse/common-law partner) and $50,000 (child).

You are eligible to enrol in the HEB Manitoba Life Insurance Plan if:

  • You are a full-time or part-time employee in a permanent, temporary or term position,
  • You belong to an eligible union or group at a healthcare facility that participates in the Plan, and
  • You are under age 71.

Casual employees are not eligible to participate in the Life Insurance Plan.


Leaving the Plan

  • If you leave the Plan, there is a 31-day period following the termination of your coverage in which you may be eligible to convert your coverage to an individual policy with Canada Life. 
  • For more information about Life Insurance conversion, call a Canada Life individual insurance client service associate at 1-888-252-1847.
