What is the minimum number of employees required for a company in Canada to be eligible for an employee group benefits plan?

In Canada, even small businesses can have an employee group benefits plan. The minimum size for a company to be eligible for a group benefits plan can be as few as two or three employees, including the owner. This threshold varies depending on the insurance provider. Some insurers specialize in small business plans and offer flexible options tailored to smaller groups. It's important for small businesses to shop around and consult with insurance brokers or providers to find a plan that suits their specific needs and size.
