Canada's life and health insurers support progressive trade agenda

Ottawa - As global leaders with significant international operations, Canada's life and health insurers are strong supporters of the Canadian government's international trade agenda. Today, CLHIA released a position paper outlining key trade priorities for the industry.

"The life and health insurance industry supports the Government's efforts to increase our international trade", stated Frank Swedlove, President and CEO of the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA). "We'd like to see the Government finalize free trade agreements in key markets with a strong emphasis on financial services."

Key trade priorities for the life and health insurance industry include: ensuring that the interests of Canada's financial sector are well-represented in all of Canada's free trade agreements; and, that agreements include coverage of new and emerging trade issues such as the cross-border flow of information and rules governing the commercial operations of State Owned Enterprises.

Three of Canada's insurers rank in the top 15 insurance companies in the world and operate in over 20 countries "Our international operations bring clear benefits to Canadians and we look forward to working with the Government to ensure we continue to bring value to the Canadian economy." added Mr. Swedlove.
