Understanding Traditional and New Benefits Products
Employee benefits plans are comprised of a selection of benefits products. However, as times change, so do benefits plans. Participants will come away with a better understanding of the products and services that are available including new offerings, such as Medical Cannabis and income replacement for compassionate care leave. We will discuss how you can enhance your offering to employees and the associated costs.
Ecclesiastical is proud to protect those who enrich the lives of others and equally proud to give back to the diverse communities we serve across Canada, through the Community Impact Grant. We are also a proud corporate sponsor of the Governor General's "The History Award for Excellence in Museums: History Alive!", and the named sponsor of "The National Trust's Cornerstone Awards for Building Heritage"
Insurance for Heritage Buildings
Is Your Organization in a Heritage Building?
Ecclesiastical Insurance Office PLC has been working to protect our heritage for more than 130 years. We’ve used this time to learn how to help protect heritage buildings from damage and to carefully restore them should a catastrophe occur.

Our Commercial Heritage Protect product has been developed with the input of customers to ensure that it meets the unique needs of these tangible elements of our history. It delivers effective insurance protection by providing necessary coverages at competitive prices.
Ask the Pharmacist: Seasonal Affective Disorder
What is seasonal affective disorder?
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of mood disorder that presents with similar symptoms to anxiety and depression, with the difference that these symptoms are related to changes in seasons. SAD typically has an onset in the fall months, symptoms peak in the winter months, and recover by the end of spring. The most common symptoms are moodiness, lack of energy, and oversleeping.
