Get a plan to fit your small business with Better Benefits

We're on your side.

The Canadian private health and dental benefits marketplace is a multiverse of choices. Determining what kind of benefits plan is optimal for retaining and recruiting employees is challenging. Where to find such a plan in the market at a fair price can be a frustrating experience for business owners and managers.

Consider this:

  • Many small businesses seek a quote from a single provider and often wind up contracting with that one provider for too long. The plan may not provide up-to-date coverage that is competitive with what other employers are offering. 
  • Rates and premiums may not be in line with what the market is able to offer. 
  • Terms and conditions of the insurer/provider may not be favourable for your staff and company.

So why go to just one benefits provider when you can get proposals and competitive rates from several of the best companies in the insurance industry?

That’s where we as professional advisors and group insurance brokers come in — we are a one-stop benefits shop.

Whether you may be looking to start a new benefit plan or to better your existing one, our experienced and professional advisors will guide you through the process and make it easy. This involves collaborating with you to design the benefit plan before shopping it with several providers.
