The Best of Both Worlds
Teachers Life is an established Canadian life, disability, and sickness insurer, and is one of the largest insurance companies for education workers in Canada. Building on Teachers Life’s signature strengths, we decided to launch a new, purpose-driven, digital-first brand for all Canadians: nowly. nowly is owned and operated by Teachers Life.
Our values of excellent Member service, world-class Member healthy living benefits, and giving back (in a bold, new way) are inspired by our parent brand, Teachers Life, who for more than 80 years, have made these values a priority. Teachers Life and nowly are about doing the right thing, right now. From instant and affordable online coverage, to instant, complimentary healthy living benefits, to bold, new ways to give back and make the world a better place. Welcome to Teachers Life / nowly Insurance.
This is the Teachers Life story.
In the beginning we were a community of education workers. People who were drawn to a profession that puts the well-being of students ahead of their own. These are people with a sense of mission. People who, every day give more than they take. Today we are a not-for-profit insurance provider for all Canadians who believe in giving to the greater good.
Our clients aren’t just a policy number, they’re Members who are entitled to fair, dignified and personal service. They’ve worked hard to achieve their personal goals and we’re here to help protect them.
Teachers Life has been a part of Ontario’s insurance and education communities since 1939. We are thriving, and committed to reinvent, grow and transform our organization by providing our Members with tailored products and benefits, delivered by an exceptional service experience.
We’ve partnered with a global leader in virtual health and wellness (Virgin Pulse) to help our Members (and our employees) live healthy now. Plus, we’re innovating giving back with our bold, new social good give back program: Press Start. Press Start provides business support and education to established and new social-preneurs so they can take their ideas or businesses to new levels to help solve some of Canada’s most challenging issues.
