Dundas Life is a fast-growing fintech startup on a mission to help Canadians find the right insurance coverage for their needs (100% digitally!).
Our founding team started Dundas Life in 2020 with the goal of making life insurance easy, the right fit, and affordable. Our own paper ridden, inconsistent experiences within the insurance industry pushed us to create a better solution. The industry is riddled with horror stories including advisors positioning the wrong product or looking after their own needs over client needs. We decided to change that.
At Dundas, we provide products that are customized for each customer's specific goals. With no high-pressure sales tactics, no unnecessary paperwork, and leading digital-first experience, we ensure Canadians get the right coverage right from the comfort of their home.
