Benefits solutions for small businesses

Great things come in small packages

Choose from benefits plans created for companies with up to 75 employees.

Why offer a benefits plan?

If you’re a small business, choosing a benefits plan might seem like a big step. It can also be a great way to separate yourself from the competition, as 77% of Canadians say they wouldn’t accept a job that didn’t include workplace benefits1
