    Actually whole life is a type of endowment. An endowment policy is a policy designed with the cash value equaling the face amount at a given age or after a set number of years. A whole life policy is an Endowment at age 100. Other examples are endowment at 65, 20 year endowment, etc.

    In Canada, if the cash value of a policy exceeds that of an endowment at age 85, then the policy is non-exempt and is subject to accrual taxation. Consequently, endowments are not usually available.
