Aon partners with major insurers to expand the innovative Aon Choice platform offering

Partner insurers – Sun Life, Manulife, Great-West Life, Desjardins Insurance, SSQ and Green Shield – represent more than 80% of the Canadian group benefits market

Toronto, ON (Nov. 28, 2018) – Aon Choice is a best-in-market platform that helps benefit plan sponsors deliver a better employee experience, simplify administration and manage costs in a single turnkey benefits solution. Aon is pleased to announce that partnerships are now in place with a total of six of Canada’s largest national insurance providers, comprising more than 80% of the group benefits market. That distribution power enables more companies to secure the advantages of the Aon Choice platform without having to switch insurance providers – and to start improving employee engagement now by providing more choice and flexibility in their benefits offerings.

“We’ve seen incredible changes in the workplace over the past few years, and one of the biggest is that workplaces today are more diverse than ever,” said Greg Durant, Health and Benefits Leader in Canada for Aon. “From a benefits perspective, that has made it difficult for plan sponsors to meet each of their employee’s unique healthcare and financial needs. Aon Choice was specifically developed to address that challenge, creating a single, easy to use benefits solution that maximizes choice and flexibility for employees while helping to manage costs and reduce administrative burden for employers. The fact that we are now working in partnership with so many leading Canadian insurers is a testament to the need for a better approach – and to the advantages that Aon Choice is delivering.”
