Director, Total Rewards 

Green Shield Canada 

Toronto, ON

Green Shield Canada (GSC) is revolutionizing the healthcare industry as part of our mission to ensure better health for all!

In 1957, our founder, pharmacist William Wilkinson, witnessed a mother sacrifice her health by forgoing her own medicine to ensure she could afford a prescription for her sick daughter. He knew there had to be a better way! He introduced North America’s first prepaid drug plan, and Green Shield was born as a not-for-profit health benefits provider that re-invested its earnings to support better health for all Canadians. 

Today, we follow in the footsteps of our founder as we continue our pursuit of a better way. No longer just a traditional health and dental benefits provider, Green Shield is now the first integrated health services organization in Canada that is both a payer (offering insurance, administering benefits, and paying claims) and a provider (offering medical, mental health, and pharmacy services).

This means we can uniquely offer:

  • Direct access to real time professional health services
  • Convenience to engage our services anywhere, anytime, effortlessly
  • Integration of our services, creating a seamless experience
  • Improved health outcomes via preventative care and treatment, and data driven insights

This evolution also deepens our social mission through both financial support and the direct delivery of services to support local communities and underserved populations across Canada.
