Executive Benefit Plans

Retaining Senior Management

Executive benefit plans are a major part of attracting and recruiting senior executives.


Senior management is frequently under-insured in core benefits like life and disability coverage. Income replacement in the event of an illness or injury can be a fraction of a senior person’s annual compensation.


High wage discrimination continues in the area of retirement benefits. Team members earning in excess of $150,000 reach the maximum contribution threshold for registered plans, making it harder to save for retirement–especially in light of recent changes to tax rules for passive income and employee share purchase plans.


Employees who regularly travel and work outside of Canada relying on standard out-of-country emergency medical coverage is another area of concern. Depending on the country and length of stay or frequency of travel, specialized coverage may be needed.
