Lifebuzz.ca - The Leading Source for News, Trends, and Insights in Life Insurance for Canadians

Life Insurance is an essential component of every Canadian’s financial plan. However, with hundreds of providers and policies, it can take time to stay up-to-date on the industry’s latest news, trends, and insights. This is where Lifebuzz comes in.

As Canada’s leading life insurance newspaper, Lifebuzz is dedicated to providing Canadians with comprehensive, accurate, and unbiased coverage of all life insurance-related matters. Our mission is simple – to equip Canadians with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about protecting their financial futures.

One of the core focuses of Lifebuzz is reporting on late-breaking news related to the Canadian life insurance industry. We have journalists stationed nationwide who continuously monitor regulatory changes, new product launches, mergers and acquisitions, financial results, executive appointments, and other significant announcements from top insurance providers like Sun Life, Canada Life, RBC Insurance, and more.
As soon as big news breaks, Lifebuzz analyzes what it means for consumers. For example, when the Canadian life insurance industry saw substantial declines in new business volumes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lifebuzz provided in-depth coverage and insights into how it impacted various providers and policyholders. We also closely followed announcements regarding premium relief measures and access to benefits.
Our real-time news reporting ensures our readers are always up-to-date on events that could affect their coverage.

In addition to breaking news, Lifebuzz publishes in-depth trend articles examining how Canadians’ insurance needs and preferences change over time. Our journalists look at macro-level trends in term vs. permanent insurance, decreasing reliance on employer group benefits, usage of policy loans, shifts in supplemental health insurance, and more.
For example, in recent years, we’ve reported on the rise of direct-to-consumer life insurance providers like PolicyMe and how they disrupt the status quo. We also analyze interesting micro-trends like the usage of insurance to cover income taxes or fund children’s education.
By reporting on key consumer trends, Lifebuzz empowers readers to ensure their coverage evolves along with their needs.

To help Canadians make smarter insurance decisions, Lifebuzz frequently consults with certified financial planners, insurance advisors, tax accountants, estate lawyers, actuaries, and other experts to provide financial planning insights and advice.

Topics we regularly cover include:

  • How much life insurance coverage is enough
  • Using insurance for estate planning and wealth transfer
  • Tax considerations related to life insurance proceeds
  • Strategies for lowering insurance premiums
  • Policy structures like permanent vs. term, joint vs. individual, etc.

  • Life insurance for special customer groups in Canada example : life insurance for smokers, life insurance for kids,..

The objective, authoritative insights from specialists help guide our readers in optimizing their life insurance plans.

For Canadians new to insurance and financial planning, Lifebuzz also offers educational guides that introduce life insurance and how it works.

For novices just starting the insurance purchase process, our guides offer an essential foundation to build upon.

One of the overarching missions of Lifebuzz is to bring greater transparency and accessibility to the often complex and opaque life insurance industry.

To promote transparency, we frequently consult with actuaries and insurance professionals to provide insights into how pricing works, how carriers calculate risk factors, how rates are developed, and what drives increases or decreases in premiums over time.

We also report on consumer surveys that shed light on the public’s perception of the Life insurance market, including pain points and areas for improvement. Issues like non-payment of claims are investigated thoroughly as well.

Additionally, Lifebuzz publishes senior executive interviews to get an inside look into how major insurance companies operate and make decisions that impact policyholders.

Shedding more excellent light on industry practices promotes openness, accountability, and transparency.

With our demonstrated commitment to in-depth, accurate, and unbiased life insurance reporting, Lifebuzz has established itself as Canada’s most trusted source for insurance news and insights. We take great pride in providing coverage that readers can rely upon to make the most important financial decisions of their lives.
