New Life, Disability & Critical Illness Partner

April 3rd, 2017

CPA Insurance Plans West is excited to share that we have changed to a new Life, Disability, and Critical Illness insurance partner, Desjardins Insurance, effective April 1, 2017.

The change in provider allows us to continue to offer the best value and range of services to our members, the expanded CPA profession in Western Canada.

The Desjardins Group is the largest cooperative financial group in Canada and 6th largest in the world. Being part of the co-operative means that members come first. As a non-profit organization created by the four western accounting bodies to provide insurance programs to CPAs and their firms, CPA Insurance Plans West shares this cooperative spirit, structure, and alignment of this ‘members-first’ value.

The transfer of our products will be seamless for our insured clients, as the coverage will not change. If you were on permanent disability prior to March 31, 2017, then your coverage will continue under Great West Life. All claims filed April 1, 2017, or later will be handled by Desjardins.

If you have any questions, please call us at 1-800-661-6430 or email us at

We thank you for being part of our program and continue to seek out new opportunities to provide increased coverage and offerings for Western Canadian CPAs at the best prices.
