Introduction

Employee Benefits in Canada 2018

Summary

The Canadian social security system covers various programs, many of which are run by the country’s provinces and territories. In general, benefits are similar across all provinces and territories; however, Quebec implements its own pension plan. The government provides financial support to provincial and territorial governments through four main transfer programs - the Canada Health Transfer (CHT), the Canada Social Transfer (CST), and Equalization and Territorial Formula Financing (TFF) - to help them provide social programs and services to citizens. Private employee benefits are gaining popularity, and many companies offer private benefit plans for employees to supplement the government-sponsored hospital and medical plans.
