The GroupHEALTH Story

From its humble beginnings as a group insurance broker based in a home office in 1982 in Prince George, B.C., GroupHEALTH has grown to become one of the largest third-party group insurance administrators in Canada. Over our almost 40 years GroupHEALTH has created groundbreaking coverages, plan designs and administration solutions to put Canadian businesses back in control of their benefits. We’ve experienced the challenges of building a business ourselves, so we took what we learned and built GroupHEALTH by listening to Canadian business owners and their challenges with their employee benefits.
