Child Critical Illness Insurance in Ontario

Child Critical Illness Mississauga and Brampton

When it comes to your family, ensuring that every member of the household is insured and receives the benefits they need is important, especially when it comes to your children. That’s why the team from DFSIN Toronto West Financial Centre specializes in critical illness insurance for children in Ontario in addition to the coverage we have for adults and the elderly.

The child critical illness insurance available from our team helps ensure your family and child can remain financially stable should they be diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. This is accomplished by paying out a one-time, lump-sum payment when they’re diagnosed with one of the 29 illnesses covered by our team, such as cancer or multiple sclerosis.

Other illnesses and diseases on the list include childhood diseases and chronic illnesses such as:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Cardiovascular Illnesses
  • Vital Organ Failure
  • Neurological Illnesses
  • Accident & Functional Loss (blindness, coma, deafness, brain injury, etc.)
  • Aortic Surgery
  • Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
  • Bacterial Meningitis
  • Motor Neuron Disease
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Aplastic Anemia
  • Occupational HIV Infection

The critical illness insurance for children available from DFSIN Toronto West also offers an advance for less severe diagnoses and treatments, such as minor cancers and cancer-related surgeries, and minor cardiovascular conditions and procedures.


We’d love to talk to you about how critical illness insurance can help you.


How Does Child Critical Illness Insurance Work?

Child critical illness insurance functions much the same as any other insurance type in the sense that once your child is diagnosed with one of the critical illnesses or childhood diseases we cover, you’ll receive a lump sum financial payout. This money can then be used to help cover additional care costs, like hiring an in-home care assistant, doctor co-pays, costs for medication, and other healthcare-related items.

Additional Benefits of Child Critical Illness Insurance

With child critical illness insurance, you’ll be able to shoulder the burden of paying for a range of medical expenses. For example, dealing with diabetes can cost families up to $1,500 a year in extra medical equipment and doctor visits; that money adds up. Child critical illness insurance also enables you or your partner to take the necessary time off work to care for your child.

With critical illness insurance, the premiums are low and guaranteed and can continue into adulthood, costing your children much less when they’re older than if they were forced to purchase critical illness insurance as an adult. Lastly, since the benefit is a one-time, lump-sum cash payout, you’re able to use the money as you see fit, meaning it can cover non-medical expenses as well.
