Who We Are

A different kind of health benefits company.


GSC is a health benefits provider. But, as a social enterprise we are more than what we do. Working to make it easier for people to live their healthiest lives is central to who we are.

What we do

A health benefits provider (with an emphasis on the “health”)

As a leader in the health benefits industry, we are structured into three core lines of business: group and individual health benefits, and third-party administration solutions.

What they all have in common is they support and strengthen GSC by offering new ways to serve and connect with clients.

Our story

Doing the right thing. It’s in our DNA.

In 1957, pharmacist Bill Wilkinson saw many Canadians struggling to afford the medication they needed — so he stepped up to help, founding what would become Green Shield Canada.

Bill’s drive to find “a better way” is still at the heart of our mission as a social enterprise, and our focus on giving back.

Social impact

Giving back to help build healthier communities

At GSC, our social impact strategy is at the centre of what we do. Every day, we work to deliver meaningful solutions to improve the health and well-being of all Canadians.
