About Benecaid

Benecaid provides innovative health benefit solutions for the SMB market in Canada. Benecaid has long been recognized as the leading alternative to the traditional insurance companies, in a market where small and mid-sized employers have been largely underserved. Benecaid sets itself apart from the competition, by using technology, creative product development and a stellar customer experience to solve problems for employers.

Benecaid just changed the game with the launch of Honeybee (www.honeybeebenefits.com), a next generation benefits platform built for today’s modern workforce that empowers employers to compete better for talent. Honeybee was developed by Benecaid’s Innovation Group, a division of Benecaid tasked with leveraging technology, data and distribution channels to build better products and digital experiences that will drive growth and retention in a fast changing landscape. The Innovation Group is self-funded by Benecaid, a profitable, stable and highly entrepreneurial company that is quickly gaining momentum as a leader in the Canadian InsureTech space.

In April 2018, Benecaid was acquired by the APRIL Group, an international insurance services organization with operations in 31 countries. As part of APRIL, we now have a bigger audience and an even more exciting story to tell.
