Our clients are owners of small retail shops, business consultants, and trades people. They work out of offices, on the road, and in their homes. We deal primarily with individuals and small businesses with fewer than 20 employees. We do have clients with up to 50 employees, but they've been with us since they were much smaller. We love it when our clients grow with us!

The care and services available with benefit plans varies depending on the provider, budget, and your particular circumstances.
Most comprehensive benefit plans will address some combination of the following:
Health insurance helps employees and their dependents pay for necessary medical expenses that aren't covered by their provincial plan.
Under the umbrella of Extended Health care, these are benefits that are meant to help keep you and your employees healthy by supplementing the gap in provincial health care programs. Plans typically include full or partial reimbursements for visits to specialist parahealth services such as massage therapy, physiotherapy, and chiropractic
Extended health care benefits also provide access to medical equipment and supplies, emergency travel insurance, and vision care.Learn more
Dental insurance plans can help cover the cost of dental care for your employees and their families and can range from full coverage for all services to partial coverage for basic services.Learn more
Critical Illness insurance can help meet the financial demands that often accompany a major illness or injury. Employees will have peace of mind knowing that in the event of a life-threatening health change, they will be able to afford medical costs, basic living expenses, or anything else for which they choose to use the funds.Learn more
Disability insurance, whether short or long term, gives employees a financial cushion in the event they become disabled due to an injury or illness and are unable to work for a period of time. Although Health insurance will typically cover the costs of treating an injury or illness, most people will have a difficult time paying for basic necessities if they aren't able to work.Learn more

Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance provides protection in the event that limbs or lives are lost.Learn more
