The late Jim Flaherty when he was Ontario Finance Minister brought in Schedule G of the Ontario Red Tape Reduction Act 2000 to repeal the 80 year old insurance trafficking prohibition in sec. 115 of the Ontario Insurance subject to FSCO bringing in Life Settlement Regulations like they have in most US states. Since the Liberals took over this has been put on the back burner and NOW Saskatchewan in "modernizing" their Insurance Act have inserted a trafficking prohibition in Bill 177.

Any Zoomer who is concerned at these attacks on their personal property rights by the life insurers should complain to CARP and their local politicians, both provincial and federal , and cc me at danielkahan@islsp.org where I am the Executive Director.

They can also download the 2004 CARP 50Plus article by June Yee entitled "Use your life insurance for cash now" from the CARP website or from my Ontario Lifeline LinkedIn Profile.

Cindy, since my last post about www.life-funding.com we were forced last summer by the Ontario regulator FSCO to add a DISCLAIMER that our loan services are NOT available to Ontario seniors INSIDE Ontario and we are now operating our website out of Halifax. Nova Scotia with 3 other provinces does not have an 80 year old prohibition against trafficking in life insurance policies in their provincial Insurance Act.

We are now in the process of setting Elder Care Funding Advisory Services in Ontario with a new www.eldercarefunding.ca  (similar to www.eldercarefunding.com I the US) and we would delighted if you would like to join us.

Hi Wafa.  Just joined the group.  I was blessed to find a loving, safe, secure home for my mom now 90, that specializes in Alzheimers care.  Shortly after that my husband 57 was diagnosed and passed away from pancreatic cancer.  By networking and staying active I found so much support and help.  So many resources but sometimes hard to find ones way around for accessing.  Once pointed in the right direction and talking to people who've been through the same thing I was able to move forward.  As a REALTOR (R) this adds to my skill set in helping seniors young and old with the loss of a spouse or parent and the life changes and paperwork that go along with that.

My designation as an Accredited Senior Agent has helped me help families who have had a parent that on short notice had to go into assisted living.  It's hard on the family to sort out all that needs to be done with getting a property ready for sale, sorting out treasured family belongings and care for their parent.   My father lived with me for over 25 years and at 92 went into a nursing home.  The transition was difficult for both of us, but mostly I felt very sad for my father.  Here was a man who had been independent for many years, lived with me for over 25 years when he could no longer be on his own and now living in a shared room with a stranger.    I find when I work with families who are in this type of transition I feel a connection, especially when I come from a place of understanding.
