Insurance and Financial Services
SAL Group, a division of Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc (IA), has specialized in creditors’ group insurance for 50 years. SAL Group introduced the first accident and health plans to Canada’s auto dealers in 1963, and has been leading the way ever since. Since its inception, SAL Group has continued to diversify and explore new product opportunities: extended warranty, appearance protection, tire and rim protection, anti-theft etch programs, GAP, loss of employment, and critical illness programs.
SAL Group’s creditor insurance, also known as loan repayment insurance is one of the most comprehensive loan repayment insurance of its kind. The best way to achieve peace of mind is to plan ahead. So it’s good to know that the insurance coverage you choose will reduce the financial impact of life’s unexpected challenges, on you and your loved ones, should anything happen to you:
Life Insurance coverage – If you were to suffer a fatal injury or illness, life coverage will pay off the insured portion of your loan. This means that your family can keep the asset and not have the strain of heavy monthly loan payments.
Critical Illness coverage – If you become diagnosed with a covered condition, critical illness coverage provides a lump sum payment that will pay off the insured portion of your loan. A ‘living life’ benefit, critical illness insurance is designed to eliminate the financial strain of the loan, giving you the freedom to focus on getting well.
Disability coverage – If you become disabled and unable to work, the disability coverage will take care of your insured monthly loan payments, allowing you to focus on getting better and back to work. You can choose the type of disability plan (accident and sickness or accidental disability plus loss of employment coverage), and the length of the waiting period that works best for you and your budget.

Silent Sentinel Anti-theft Etch
A traceable ID number is permanently etched into all the body panels of the vehicle, deterring thefts before they touch the car. Etching works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; nothing to switch on or off. If the vehicle is stolen and not recovered, or if it is recovered but declared a total loss, the customer will receive the actual cash value of the vehicle at the time of theft. Limited travel expense coverage is also available.
More than 100,000 vehicles are stolen in Canada each year. By protecting your property with Silent Sentinel etch, we warrant it will not get stolen and if it is, you can get up to $7,600.
