Vacation Insurance, Increased Interest Rates, & a 4th Covid Wave

We have now entered one of the most active seasons of the year and many of us have started to plan vacations and getaways to escape our daily routines. Travelling to a new place is always exciting, so make sure you’re properly protected by getting emergency travel insurance.

Did you know your employees can get Emergency Travel Assistance for up to 180 days per trip on worldwide travel with a 100% reimbursement? Travelling with a benefit plan is the best way to travel stress-free.

Contact one of our Benefit Experts to ensure you have a great benefit policy in place that will help your employees travel with peace of mind and come back to work refreshed and energized.

Bank of Canada Increases Interest Rates

Inflation in Canada is currently at its highest since 1991 and is expected to remain around 8% through the next quarter. CLICK HERE below to learn more in the Bank of Canada’s press release.

Contact one of our Benefits Specialists today to make sure your employees are properly covered during these times of high inflation, as it is much more preferable to have benefits than to put large costs on a line of credit.
