Attracting and retaining high-quality talent is as important now as it ever has been. Your employer-sponsored benefits plan is a critical piece of the overall compensation package that can set your company apart from others in your industry. Whether you are looking to implement an employee benefits plan for the first time or benchmark your current plan, benefits advisors (aka benefits consultants) are available to help.

The following benefits brokerages have offices in Atlantic Canada which includes the Provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador. These advisors offer a range of services, some exclusively focusing on optimizing your benefits plan, and others providing more broad financial and investment-related advice.

Helpful Resource: If you are looking for a benefits specialist in a province outside of Atlantic Canada, see our Comprehensive List of Benefits Brokers, Advisors & Consultants in Canada

It is important to note that firms can provide their expertise as a fee-for-service (common with Benefits Consultants) or receive a commission paid directly from the chosen insurer (Advisors and Brokers). Be sure to ask the advisor what their compensation structure looks like when you contact them.

These firms are ordered alphabetically.
