Green Benefits Group partners with Acera Insurance

Local team and offices to remain in place

Burlington, ON, March 25, 2024 — Green Benefits Group Inc. is pleased to announce it has partnered with Acera Insurance Services Ltd. and will be joining the organization’s specialty Acera Benefits division.

This development will provide local businesses in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area with a broader suite of group benefits and retirement savings solutions.

“As a tight-knit, independent firm that is focused on building lasting relationships with our clients, Green Benefits Group has never compromised on the personalized expert solutions we provide,” says Rob Green, President, Green Benefits Group. “We have worked diligently to find the right partner to evolve the solutions, services and competitive pricing we can offer to businesses in the GTHA, and we are excited to join an organization that shares our same values.”

Acera Benefits is an integrated benefits consulting team that supports Canadian employers in designing competitive, cost-effective and customized group benefits plans that are flexible in an ever-changing health and wellness environment.

As a dedicated division of Acera Insurance — the largest independent, employee-controlled brokerage in Canada — Acera Benefits is uniquely positioned to offer clients several value-added services not typically available through traditional benefits consultants. This includes access to robust commercial insurance teams who have deep knowledge and dedicated expertise across a broad spectrum of industries, as well as specialty coverages for executives’ and directors’ high-net-worth needs.

“The Acera Benefits team works closely with our colleagues across the entire Acera Insurance organization to provide holistic solutions that not only help Canadian businesses build a healthy and dedicated workforce, but also provides coverage for their operations,” says Tony Fairfield, President, Group Benefits, Acera Insurance. “We are excited to have the industry-leading team at Green Benefits Group join us as their dedication, knowledge and resources will complement our efforts to meet the evolving needs of businesses across the country.”

While Green Benefits Group will eventually transition to become Acera Benefits as part of this partnership, its deeply rooted presence and support of communities within the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area will continue.

“Our name will be changing, but our local team that the business community knows and trusts will continue to be here providing exceptional service and solutions,” says Green.

The local teams will continue to be located in Burlington and Welland, ON.
