Canada’s Top Employee Benefits Providers For 2017

It’s spring, so in the employee benefits industry, that means that it’s time for one of the leading benefits publications, Benefits Canada, to publish their list of the top employee benefits providers for 2017.

Some years, you’ll see large increases – mainly due to acquisitions (e.g. when Manulife purchased Standard Life). Not this year – the companies have remained the same.

You’ll notice that the largest market share increases are from Greenshield and RBC – interesting because they formed a partnership a few years back.
