Get comprehensive health coverage before you need it

May 20, 2016

OFA members are eligible for a wide range of flexible benefit programs to provide health and dental insurance to protect farm families and farm employees. Health and dental plans are provided through a partnership with CBA, a firm with more than 25 years of plan consulting expertise.

OFA members can purchase a group benefit plan for 20% - 30% less than our individual clients. Individual plans are also available for you and your family. Click here to learn more about plan rates and options.

Ontario farm businesses that have three or more employees working a minimum of 20 hours per week on a full-time basis (not seasonal workers) are now eligible for a small group insurance plan through OFA’s Insurance Program.
