The Co-operators announced Jan. 26 that, through an agreement with EQ Care, it will provide virtual healthcare services to its group benefits clients across Canada.  

These services will be available 24 hours per day, seven days per week in English and French. 

"We're excited and confident that with this agreement, our plan sponsors will have access to reliable, high-quality virtual healthcare for their plan members," stated Conor Quinn, VP Group Benefits, The Co-operators. "The second wave of COVID-19 is having a major impact on our plan sponsors as they continue to keep their plan members safe while also taking care of their businesses. That's why it's more important than ever that patients have peace of mind knowing they have access to primary care services via a secure, made-in-Canada online platform."
