[An animated young woman wearing her hair in a bun and a black dress stands smiling. A smiling boy wearing a backpack appears on her left and a smiling girl holding a stuffed animal appears on her right. The boy holds the woman's hand.]

Anne worked hard to build a successful career and a better life for her family, saving money for retirement and ensuring a bright future for her children.

[Anne is wearing her hair in a bob and a pair of glasses. The boy becomes a teenager holding a book and the girl becomes a teenager wearing earbuds attached to a smartphone.]

Then, one day, Anne was diagnosed with cancer. Luckily, it was caught early, and her doctor reassured her that she had a good chance at survival.

[The children disappear. Anne's smile turns into a frown. She's standing while wearing a hospital gown. A clock appears beside her. Anne smiles as the minute hand spins counter-clockwise.]

Fortunately, Anne's financial advisor had helped her put a plan in place.

[A smiling man wearing a green tie and holding a document appears. Anne holds up the document. On the title page, the Desjardins logo stands beside the words, "Desjardins Insurance."]

Health Priorities by Desjardins Insurance would cover her if she was ever diagnosed with cancer or a critical illness.

[Anne, wearing lounge clothing, sits in a lotus position on a mat.]

[On-screen text: Your cancer or critical illness must meet the policy definition. Please note that some cancers and critical illness qualify for a partial benefit of 30%, 15% or 1% of the policy amount, depending on the severity. Other limitations and exclusions may apply.]

In Anne's case, her coverage gives her the confidence she needs and the financial flexibility to focus on her recovery and not dip into her savings to cover unexpected costs.

[On a sunny day, a car drives to a hospital. Stacks of money slide into a safe. The door swings shut and the handle spins.]

It's money Anne could use to help pay for ongoing household expenses and protect her retirement savings. Desjardins Insurance also offers Anne the advantage of having access to expert medical advice and support when she needs it the most.

[Anne and her teenage children appear on a circle. Stacks of gold coins appear on another circle. A house with a swimming pool appears on another circle. A stethoscope, an open eye, a file folder and a magnifying glass appear on another circle.]

[On-screen text: Assistance services are not a contractual obligation of Desjardins Insurance and may be withdrawn at any time without notice.]

Now, Anne could have peace of mind knowing that she and her family are protected when it really counts.

[The safe, the medical equipment, the hospital, Anne's teenage children and the house appear on a rotating circle.]
