Staff Benefits: Quebec introduces new parental insurance plan

The Quebec Parental Insurance Plan, which comes into effect on January 1, 2006, replaces the maternity, parental and adoption benefits currently available under the Federal Employment Insurance Plan. Benefits associated with a birth or adoption taking place on or after January 1, 2006, will be paid under this new plan. Among other things, parents will be able to choose between two benefit options and decide the duration of their leave as well as their income replacement rate. Visit the Régime québécois d'assurance parentale (RQAP) website linked below for further details.

Maritime Life and Manulife Financial - a single combined organization

On April 28, 2004, a merger agreement between Manulife Financial Corporation and John Hancock Financial Services Inc. was completed. In Canada, this merger meant that Maritime Life - a subsidiary of John Hancock Financial Services - became part of the Manulife Group of Companies. This merger has not affected the administration of our Health and Dental Plans. The benefits you currently enjoy, plus the plan improvements introduced in January 2005, have not changed. The plan contract number is still 7257. However, starting early in 2005, you will begin to see – and hear – signs that Manulife Financial and Maritime Life are becoming a single, combined organization.
