Giving Back

At Equitable Life, we believe in giving back to the communities where we live and work. To help celebrate our 100th Anniversary, we are pleased to announce we have made a significant donation to support health care and improve the quality of life in Waterloo Region.

On May 7, 2020, Equitable Life announced a donation of $4.5 million to the Grand River Hospital Foundation for the purchase and installation of a new advanced MRI scanner.


“For 100 years, we’ve been protecting what matters most to Canadians,” said Ronald Beettam, President and CEO, Equitable Life of Canada. “The advanced technology of medical imaging plays a vital role in quickly and accurately diagnosing very urgent medical conditions, and this saves lives. In honour of our 100th Anniversary, Equitable Life is proud to be able to help Grand River Hospital add this crucial resource to our health care system. We expect this will have a lasting impact on improving the quality of life in Waterloo Region.”
