Enrol in Benefits

Confirm Your Eligibility

As a full-time Team Member, you can enrol yourself and your eligible dependant(s) in most benefit plans as long as eligibility requirements are met.

You must complete enrolment when you are first eligible. If you do not enrol when you are first eligible, you may be asked to complete a Statement of Health, and coverage may be denied.

Enrol through Workday

You will use Workday to manage your elections, dependant information, and beneficiary designations.


Biweekly premium costs will be automatically deducted from each paycheque based on the coverage you choose. You can find all plan rates on this website, located under “Benefits” in the navigation menu at the top of the page.

Medical, Vision & Dental Coverage

Michaels offers you the opportunity to select Medical, Vision, and Dental coverage that extends your provincial health plan benefits. This “extra” coverage protects you from life’s expected — and unexpected — health expenses.

Life & Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) Coverage

Michaels provides free Basic Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) coverage with the option to elect additional coverage.

Qualifying Life Events

Understand when you can make changes to your benefits: Change in Status.

Choose Wisely

After you enrol, you typically can’t make changes until the next Open Enrolment period. Changes are only allowed if you have a Qualifying Life Event, such as birth, adoption, marriage, or divorce. In this case, changes must be made within 31 days of the event.
