To provide Canadians with the opportunity to secure optimal Healthcare and "Life" benefits.
Our vision is 20/20. In the year 2020, Olympia Benefits will have enriched the lives of 250,000 Canadians through the successful delivery of our Healthcare and "Life" benefits.
What are "Life" benefits?
Olympia currently sells products related to healthcare and travel. As we continue to develop our position in these markets, other opportunities to create value for our clients are constantly evaluated. Olympia will focus on enhancing the lives of our clients through products and services in a category we call "Life". Life products are typically restricted to life insurance whereas we envision a broader category of "Life" to give us the flexibility to enrich our client's lives in many aspects.
Olympia Benefits is a specialist in delivering niche products that create meaningful value for Canadians. Specifically, Olympia has become the trusted health and dental plan administrator to Canada's small business owners. With the addition of our travel and exceptional expense plans, we have continued our tradition of securing our client's financial and personal wellbeing.
Olympia has been in business since 1996 and operates as a subsidiary of the publically traded company Olympia Financial Group Inc. Over the past 15 years, we have processed nearly 1,000,000 claims for over 29,000 businesses and 80,000 employees. With annual claims exceeding $60 million, we are the market leader with an unparalleled depth of industry expertise and resources that allow us to deliver solutions that no one else can.
We are passionate about our clients and we are here to create significant value with every aspect of our business.
