Group Insurance – Coverage and Plans
No matter the size of your business, we offer a complete range of group insurance products to meet your needs. We even offer the possibility of coverage for your employees working outside of the country.
When it comes to developing a plan, we prefer using a personalized approach. That’s why we work to build a partnership with you and your advisors so that together, we can choose the plan and coverage that is right for you. Here is an overview of our coverage possibilities.
This coverage allows reimbursements for:
- Prescription drugs
- Hospitalization fees
- Ambulance fees
- Medical care
- Paramedical care (chiropractor, massage therapist, psychologist, osteopath, etc.)
- Emergency expenses outside the province of residence
This complementary coverage reimburses homecare expenses for individuals recovering from a hospital stay or a day surgery.
Dental care coverage provides partial reimbursement of dental fees incurred by the member or the member's family for preventative care, basic care, major care and orthodontic care.
Vision care coverage provides reimbursement of eye examinations as well as a portion of the cost of glasses or contact lenses for the member and the member's family.
Member’s Life Insurance
Member’s life insurance guarantees, in case of the member’s death, that the sum insured will be paid to the designated beneficiaries. It is offered in a choice of fixed amounts or annual salary multiples.
Dependent’s Life Insurance
Dependents’ life insurance provides coverage against the death of the member's spouse and dependent children. Upon the death of a dependent, the member will receive the sum insured under the contract.
Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance
In case of accidental death, the insured life insurance sum doubles. If the member suffers the accidental loss of one or more limbs, the maximum benefit is equal to a percentage of the life insurance coverage.

We understand that the loss of a loved one can be a very difficult and overwhelming time. That’s why we offer this service that accelerates the claims process when the insured amount is $75,000 or less.
