EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PROGRAMS
For many small businesses, it can be difficult to
find and retain good people.
A well-designed group benefits plan is an important part of any compensation strategy and can be more tax efficient than simple salary increases.
Group benefits can also help you attract the
best talent, giving them a competitive edge.
Here at CDW Benefits we design, review and offer many different types of benefits programs depending on the needs and budget our clients set out for us.
We offer benefit programs or options down to 1 employee and we always offer personalized, expert service to go along with our advice.
If you would like a free quote or review of your current benefits program, please contact us anytime.
We look forward to hearing from you

PACIFIC BLUE CROSS
Individual EHC & Dental Products
If the health coverage provided by your employer is about to end or has recently ended, PBC has designed a plan called Blue Choice Conversion, which lets you continue health and dental coverage without interruption so you and your family can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing you're protected from the financial hardship of unexpected health costs.
Your group plan doesn't even need to have been provided by Blue Cross. Blue Choice Conversion is available for the initial transfer from any recognized Canadian group benefits plan within 60 days as long as you have been covered for at least 6 months under a group plan. And there's no need to complete a medical questionnaire, so there's no need to worry about
prescription medications that you're already taking.
MANULIFE INDIVIDUAL EHC & DENTAL, PLUS TRAVEL COVERAGE
Follow me (group conversion), Flexcare and Travel products are available here
Costs for health-related services can add up quickly, whether you are filling a prescription, visiting the dentist or getting new glasses. Health insurance helps you manage your routine and unexpected costs, protecting your budget and lifestyle. Now, imagine a health insurance plan that doesn’t just help protect against the unexpected but can also help prevent future health issues to help you live your healthiest life.
Available on Flexcare® and FollowMe™ health and dental plans, Manulife Vitality gives you control over your coverage, lets you earn rewards, and save on
premiums, all while improving your health.
Individual EHC & Dental Products
The work world is evolving. Green Shield is transforming health coverage to meet your changing needs. Provincial government health plans do not fully cover the costs of many health care services, leaving you vulnerable. GSC's supplemental health and dental plans can fill those gaps and provide you
with the protection you need.
Green Shield Canada (GSC) is a solutions-oriented,
national not-for-profit health and dental benefits specialist.

FLEXIBLE BENEFIT PROGRAMS
Health Care Spending & Taxable Spending Accounts
Since being introduced in Canada in the 1980s, flexible benefits programs have become increasingly popular as plan sponsors balance the desire to attract and retain employees with the need to provide a sustainable benefits program.
Even smaller employers have looked to vehicles such as Health Care Spending Accounts and Taxable Spending Accounts as a way to offer flexibility and choice.
Why introduce a flexible benefit plan?
A flexible benefits program can appeal to the diverse needs of an employee population by allowing for choice while providing the employer with an effective mechanism for controlling costs. Employee cost-sharing and the visibility of price tags tend to give an employee a better sense of the value of the benefits program, and can promote health care consumerism.
With flex plans, employers often look to offer a wider range of benefits such as cash back on unspent flex dollars, vacation buy and sell, Health Care Spending Accounts, Taxable Savings Account, RRSP contributions and more.
