Recent media coverage may have led to some confusion about Equitable Life of Canada and the Equitable Group.

Equitable Life is in no way associated with the Equitable Group, a Toronto-based alternative mortgage lender. 

Equitable Life of Canada posted outstanding financial results for 2016, surpassing previous records on almost all financial fronts and achieving several significant milestones over the course of the year. For more information about Equitable Life’s financial strength and stability, you can review our 2016 Annual Report.
