Comprehensive Employee Benefits

Does My Company Qualify?

To qualify for membership you must be directly involved in the construction industry and have a minimum of three field employees. The construction industry is wide and varied, so please contact us at 204-888-6202 to determine if your company qualifies.

Four plans are available to MERIT Member Companies

Each field employee of a MERIT employer is eligible for benefits and must fill out an enrollment card, which is sent to administrator Mercon Benefit Services by the employer. Once employees are in benefit, they receive a benefit booklet and contact cards from Mercon, with which they can access their status and information online.

Hours worked each month are reported by the employer and recorded by Mercon, using employee social insurance number. MERIT benefits follow employees in the event they start employment with another MERIT employer. In addition, Mercon operates a dedicated call centre for both employers and employees.

*There is also a Medical Reimbursement Plan available for owners and senior executives.

MERIT benefit plan coverage is adjudicated by Great West Life Assurance Company, and is administered independently by Mercon Benefit Services.
