Chambers Plan Group Insurance

The Best Group Benefits Solution for Small Businesses
The Chambers Plan is designed specifically for small businesses. It gives small business owners and entrepreneurs premium stability and access to group insurance and employee benefits that previously were only available to large corporations.

You may think you can’t afford a benefits plan, but the Chambers Plan offers a comprehensive benefits solution on any budget! Your advisor will help you choose the group insurance coverage through the Chambers Plan that is just right for you, whether you run a home-based one-person business or an office with many employees.

Garrett Insurance is the exclusive Chambers Plan provider for the following Chambers of Commerce; St. Catharines Greater Niagara, Welland, Grimsby, Lincoln, Niagara Falls, NOTL, West Lincoln.

How the Chambers Plan Works
The Chambers Plan is the largest pooled employee benefits plan in Canada.

This means that premiums and rates aren’t as susceptible to changes based on your small group of employees and their claims. Instead, the claims of similar participating firms are aggregated to determine a fair rate across these groups.

The outcome for you, the business owner, is greater stability for your group plan rates.
