We’re on a mission to help working Canadians, promote and protect their health, wealth, and happiness by delivering benefits by design.
Benefits by Design (BBD) is on a mission to help working Canadians promote and protect their health, wealth, and happiness by delivering employee benefits by design.
What We Do
There is something very distinctive and descriptive about the name Benefits by Design. It showcases our tremendous expertise in the benefits space and our incredible amount of plan design options because of our capabilities as a Third Party Administrator.
While we refer to ourselves as BBD, BBD is who we are – not what we do. What we do for customers is one thing: benefits by design (and we do that really well!).
When we provide benefit programs for working Canadians, we suggest that they consider their Health, Wealth, and Happiness. An employee that is healthy, wealthy, and happy is far more likely to be productive and engaged and feel supported by their employer.
Why Choose Benefits by Design?
A Canadian Success Story
With more than twenty years in the group insurance industry, BBD is a trusted provider to more than 46,000 working Canadians from 4,500+ Canadian businesses.
Solutions for Any Sized Business
Small- to medium-sized enterprises (SME)s are the backbone of the Canadian economy, and with our origins as a SME ourselves, we know the struggles they face. That’s why BBD has products specifically for SMEs, with cost-containment and flexibility built right in.
Focused on Plan Sustainability
An employee benefits plan will naturally grow and change over time. BBD builds and prices employee benefits plans with long-term sustainability in mind, rather than pricing to attract and then increasing rates when it’s time to renew.
Benefits Administration Experts
As a Third Party Administrator (TPA), BBD will help you set up, maintain, adjust, and successfully run your employee benefits plan. Through secure, online benefits administration platforms and online enrollment, benefits administration has never been so easy!
BBD chooses supplier partners that share our philosophy around creating sustainable employee benefit plans designed to protect Canadian employers and their plan members’ health, wealth, and happiness.
Green and Socially Responsible
From paperless invoices, a focus on online services and statements, to volunteering and community cleanup, BBD helps the communities we work in succeed and thrive.
Together. Adapt. Grow
A set of simple values underpins everything we do at BBD. Internally and externally we focus on TAG: TOGETHER, we ADAPT, and GROW.
