What we do.

Our mission is to improve the wellbeing of Canadians. We do that by helping people manage and improve their health, by providing access to care when and where it’s needed, and by investing in new ideas and innovations that can help Canada become a leader in health and wellness.

From unique benefit plans with ongoing health management to impactful community care initiatives and innovative collaborations with partners from across the health care landscape, we extend our health care system by taking health outside our hospitals.


Medavie Blue Cross

Group and Individual Benefits Management

Medavie Blue Cross is a premier all-in-one carrier that provides health, dental, travel, life and disability benefits to individuals and organizations across Canada.

Medavie Health Services

EMS and 911 Public Safety | Clinical Training

The largest contracted provider of emergency medical services (EMS) in the country, Medavie Health Services is on the front lines of health care delivery managing ambulance services in six provinces for over 2.4 million Canadians. Our clinical training school enables the next generation of paramedics to serve our communities and, through a partnership with the Department of National Defence, provides Canadian Armed Forces personnel with the paramedic skills they need to serve our country.

Operations 3

Primary Health Care | 811 Telehealth

We believe many of the challenges our health care systems face can be addressed with innovative models of delivering care. We know this because we see the results from initiatives in multiple provinces that utilize existing primary health care resources in the most effective ways, including ensuring paramedics practice at the top of their scope to provide ongoing care to patients in their homes and communities, keeping them healthy outside the hospital.

We see the opportunity to do more. We want to enable more primary care services like the 811 programs, community paramedics, home care services, and others we manage to work together and coordinate the valuable services they provide. Continuing to test and evolve these new ideas to address our health system challenges helps help people stay healthy as long as possible, navigate the health care system when they do need it, and ultimately ensures they receive the right care, at the right time, and in the right place.

Operations 4

Community Health Initiatives

Through the Medavie Foundation, we invest in bringing organizations and communities together through collaborative multi-year partnerships and to support grassroots, community-based health initiatives. We believe the Medavie Foundation acts as an incubator to test new ideas, scale evidenced-based programs, and discover new opportunities to improve access to care.

Our Mission is to Improve the Wellbeing of Canadians.
