On January 23, 2012, Unity Life of Canada, officially changed its name to Foresters Life Insurance Company.

Unity Life of Canada was formed in 2002 when Toronto Mutual Life and Western Life Assurance merged. Its history actually dates back to 1898 when the company was founded as the Insurance Department of the Subsidiary High Court of the Ancient Order of Foresters. Most recently on April 2, 2008, Unity Life was converted from a mutual life company to a stock life insurance company owned by Foresters. The Toronto-based company offers a competitive lineup of traditional life insurance products such as term, permanent and living benefits insurance.

It is also an active player in the niche markets, offering complete accident and sickness insurances and financial protection.

Unity Life also underwrites a host of unique non medical simplified issue products marketed by Canada Protection Plan
