Canada Life

London, ON

Canada Life My Par Gift is a first-of-its-kind participating life insurance product for donors, designed for charitable giving. The objective was to intrigue and educate advisors, wholesalers, high-net-worth donors and charitable organizations of this “simple product, big impact” opportunity to make donation dollars go further from day one. The aesthetic seamlessly blends the Canada Life high-net-worth brand with a pre-established charitable giving look-and-feel, enhancing its appeal to affluent audiences. With a sophisticated visual approach featuring tone-on-tone illustrations, full flooded backgrounds and icons with lifeline detail, the campaign exudes simplicity and elegance yet possesses a sense of intrigue and progression. The strategic use of white space, refined typography and intentional alignment ensures a visually compelling and easily digestible campaign while maintaining accessibility features. The success of the launch speaks volumes, with overwhelming positive feedback and notable achievements in marketing goals. After featuring My Par Gift at the annual Canada Life Insurance Live! event, 87% expressed increased interest in selling Canada Life participating life insurance.
