nowly’s values (excellent Member service, world-class healthy living benefits, and giving back) are inspired by our parent brand, Teachers Life, who, for more than 80 years have made these values a priority. Teachers Life is one of the largest insurance providers for the education community in Canada.

Building on Teachers Life’s signature strengths, we decided to launch a new, purpose-driven, digital-first brand for all Canadians.

nowly is about doing the right thing, right now. We aim to help you protect your family with instant and affordable online coverage, that comes with complimentary healthy living benefits, all while giving back to make the world a better place. Welcome to nowly.

We’ve partnered with a global leader in virtual health and wellness, Virgin Pulse, to provide our Members with a complimentary state-of-the-art health and wellness program. Members also receive an annual $50 Living Healthy rebate. Most importantly, we've launched a bold, social give back program called Press Start. Press Start provides business support and education to established and new social-preneurs so they can take their ideas or businesses to new levels to help solve some of Canada’s most challenging issues. That’s living nowly!
