Portable Benefits - Ontario

The Portable Benefits Advisory Panel was established in March 2022 to advise the Ontario government on the viability, design and implementation of a program that could provide portable benefits to millions of workers who change jobs often and may not have access to employer-provided benefits. The Panel will issue a report with their recommendations next year.

ORHMA has been involved and is encouraging our members to participate during this process and would value your perspective. You can send a written submission directly to the Panel. We are asking that you please copy ORHMA at info@orhma.com.

You should consider developing recommendations for a portable benefits program, with particular attention to the following questions:

  1. What role(s) do you see for your industry in a portable benefits program for non-standard workers?

  2. What trends are you seeing regarding the provision of benefits in your industry?

  3. What might be the benefits to employers that arise from their workers having access to a benefits plan?

  4. What should we consider regarding your industry’s ability to make financial contributions to a portable benefits program?

  5. What are some of the labour shortage issues your industry is facing? What about attraction and retention/turnover?

You can review the public consultation and complete the survey, which are open until December 16, 2022. . We also encourage you to provide a written submission to the Panel, which you can send to portablebenefitspanel@ontario.ca.  Please copy ORHMA at info@orhma.com.
