The purpose of the Bill is set out in the Preamble.
An Act respecting
Canadian Life Line Limited
Canadian Life Line Limited has applied for special legislation to exempt it from the prohibition in the Insurance Act against persons, other than insurers, trading in insurance policies.

(2) Words and expressions used in subsection (1) have the same meaning as they do in section 115 of the Insurance Act.
2. This Act comes into force on the day it receives Royal Assent.
3. The short title of this Act is the Canadian Life Line Limited Act, 1995.
