  • Bill S-201: An Act to prohibit and prevent genetic discrimination will come into effect early April 2017. This new law contains penalties for non-compliance, including fines of up to $1 million and/or imprisonment for up to five years. The Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA) has indicated it is reviewing the impact this Bill is expected to have on consumers and is considering its options in light of Parliament’s decision. Until the new Act takes effect, we’ll continue to adhere to the longstanding Industry Code on Genetic Testing Information for Insurance Underwriting, which has been in effect since the early 1980s. Compliance requires that an insurer not ask a proposed insured to undergo genetic testing.
