Thank you for your help! I found a better rate with you since Caisse Populaire Desjardins wanted to charge me an additional $21 per month.

I was turned down by one insurance company and another wanted an unbelievable extra premium. Meilleure Assurance Vie found a life insurance policy for me at a regular rate. I have referred all my acquaintances to them. I would like to thank the personnel/staff for their discretion and honesty.
- J. Drolet Montreal, December 2011
We knew what protection we wanted for our family. We did not want an insurance agent telling us what to do. An insurance broker from SoumissionAssuranceVie completed a need analysis for us. We took matters into our own hands and saved hundreds of dollars per year. Thank you very much to Meilleure Assurance Vie.
