Protecting What Matters

As an individual, family member, business owner or professional, we all want to protect what's important to us,
be it our health, family, lifestyle, assets or business. We want to ensure that our accomplishments and what we are working towards
is protected from the unexpected. Meridian has partnered with insurers that can help you with a variety of insurance needs.

Travel Insurance

A lot can happen when you're travelling or even when you’re simply shopping for the day across the border. You can get sick or injured, or you may have to interrupt your trip and return home. You should never leave home without adequate travel medical coverage because you need protection against those unforeseen and expensive medical emergencies. Meridian has arranged to make insurance policies available to its Members through a networking arrangement with a third party insurer.
Travel Insurance is available at your local branch during business hours. Or simply call Meridian’s Contact Centre at 1-866-592-2226 to arrange for coverage over the phone. Travelling outside Canada and want to take local currency? Meridian meets your travel needs. We carry over 75 currencies available, for almost any country in the world.

If you're ready to go, purchase travel Insurance now and get the protection you need!

Mortgage Protection / Creditor Insurance

Protect the investment in your home and your payments with group mortgage insurance (GMP).  Group Mortgage Protection is a monthly premium that helps safeguard your home in case of financial hardships including life, disability, or critical illness, for as long as you hold your mortgage.  To apply for GMP, call us at your local branch.  

Taking on a mortgage, loan or line of credit is a big commitment. Be prepared and feel secure knowing that your payments will be made, even if the unexpected should happen. Meridian offers creditor insurance that covers life, disability, critical illness and loss of employment. See our loans and lines or chat with your local Branch to learn more about Creditor Insurance.
