Our Health and Benefit Plans

Designed exclusively for the unique needs of hourly workers, the Hour Bank Benefit Plan is portable between all OpenCircle Member organizations across Canada.

Designed for office and administration staff, the Office Supervisory Benefit Plan operates like a traditional benefit plan and provides identical coverages to those available under the Hour Bank Benefit Plan.

Available to retired employees between ages 55 and 89, the Retiree Benefit Plan offers flexible coverage options with no medical underwriting required, ensuring coverage will continue well into retirement.
