Basic Life Insurance

The monthly premiums for Basic Life Insurance are as follows:

​Employees pay... ​NAV CANADA pays...
$0.178 per $1,000 of coverage $0

After you reach age 65, NAV CANADA will pay 100% of the premium for the first $5,000 of coverage; you pay for any remaining coverage.

Premiums are subject to provincial tax: for Ontario (8%), Quebec (9%) and Manitoba (8%).

Life insurance premiums and provincial tax paid by NAV CANADA constitute a taxable benefit under the Income Tax Act. This amount is added to your T4 and Relevé 1 slips, for active employees. Applicable income tax is deducted from your pay. If you live in Quebec and work in another province you will not receive a Relevé 1 slip.
