Benefit Extras & Discounts

Provided by Michaels


The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a free and confidential resource available for you and your family — even if you’re not enrolled in a benefit plan through Michaels.

We care about your mental health as much as we care about your physical health, so all full-time Team Members are eligible to receive up to three face-to-face counseling sessions per issue at no charge using the EAP.

The EAP can help you:

  • Manage stress, money worries and family worries
  • Deal with work/life services like childcare, elder care and education services
  • Locate resources for adoption, relocating, camps, volunteer opportunities, pets and more

For more information, visit (Username: Michaels Canada; Password: employee) or call the EAP 24 hours a day, seven days a week at Toll Free: 1-877-847-4525 | Email: | SMS Texting: +1 647-624-2840.
