Great-West Life celebrates 125 years

Great-West Life turned 125 on Aug. 28, 2016! The company is celebrating this milestone all year, and we’d like all Canadians to participate in the excitement.

“As we mark 125 years, we look forward to building on our strengths, the greatest of which is our people,” says Stefan Kristjanson, president and chief operating officer, Canada.

To honour Great-West Life’s history, we’ll look back at our past by sharing stories in Great-West Life’s social media spaces. You can join the conversation at any time in our social spaces or share stories of your own using the hashtag #GreatWest125.

Great-West Life also introduced 125 Community Volunteer Grants of $1,000 each for employees who volunteer in their communities. That’s $125,000 to support the local organizations that matter most to the people who make up our company.

To celebrate Great-West Life’s past, present and future and recognize the role all Canadians have played in its success, the company has planned events for its family of employees at locations across Canada.
