Genworth Canada…is now Sagen. 

While we’ve changed our name, our business remains the same. 

Since 1995, we’ve been committed to advancing the housing market across Canada to make homeownership more accessible to first-time homebuyers.

How do we do this? 

By bringing innovative default mortgage insurance solutions to lenders and brokers, helping find the right fit for the needs of their customers. By providing the highest level of service to lenders and brokers, making every deal the most important deal. By staying ahead of industry changes, working with policy makers, and helping our customers adapt and succeed in new environments. In the end, our goal is the same as yours, to help Canadians achieve the dream of homeownership. 

Our new brand reflects many of our values that we’ll always hold true.

Our thought leadership that helps understand and adapt to industry changes


Our never-wavering commitment to our customers and their customers’ needs


Our full and upfront transparency throughout the transaction process with our partners

Our Brand Values


We’re here for our partners: Canada’s lenders. It’s our job to keep them informed and equipped with the tools they need.


We always show the thinking behind every decision we make. That’s how you foster trust, and we don’t take that lightly.


We strongly believe that everybody should be treated with equal consideration, care, and courtesy.


We do everything in our power to deliver the exceptional service we’ve always been known for—and find new ways to make it better all the time.


We believe in working smarter. Data informs our decisions, but our people—and their years of experience—drive our innovation.

Thought Leadership

Whether it’s insights on policy, economics and emerging trends, or best practices for lenders, we’re passionate about sharing our knowledge.
