As a specialist in the Indigenous benefit market, we provide the coverage requirements that are specific to the needs of our clients. Whether you are an Indigenously owned business, or have Indigenous employees and dependents on your plan, we have your ideal benefit solution. When it comes to employee benefits, it is important that all of our clients are provided with the correct amount of coverage to coordinate their benefits with Indian & Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) and Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB). For a non-taxable employee, plan design must also be taken into account to ensure that the employee’s disability income, in the event that they become disabled, is paid appropriately.
Our long-standing relationship with the largest and most well-known insurance providers for Indigenous insurance enables us to offer innovative solutions at competitive pricing and advanced technology and administration services to support this essential coverage.
