Enrolment Checklist

Michaels offers extended benefits to support you and your family.

Your Enrolment Checklist

Who’s eligible

– As a full-time Team Member, you can enrol yourself and your dependants in most benefit plans if you meet the eligibility requirement. You must enrol with Sunlife when you are first eligible. If you do not enroll when first eligible, you may be asked to complete a Statement of Health and coverage may be denied.

Health coverage

– Michaels offers you the opportunity to select medical and vision coverage that extends your provincial health plan benefits. This “extra” coverage protects you from life’s expected — and unexpected — health expenses. You can also elect dental coverage.

Life and AD&D Insurance

– Michaels provides free basic life and accidental death & dismemberment (AD&D) insurance. If you want additional financial protection, you may buy optional life and AD&D insurance.

Review the Enrollment Guide

– For details, see your Enrolment Guide. You can also see your coverage options on this site.

Qualifying Life events

– Understand when you can make benefit changes.

Enrol with Sun Life

– Reach out to Sun Life Financial online or call 1-866-881-0583. AdminPlus representatives can assist you 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday to Friday (EST).


– Know how much the plans cost. Bi-weekly premiums will be automatically deducted from each paycheque based on the coverage you choose.

Choose wisely

– After you enrol, you typically can’t make changes until the next Open Enrolment period. Otherwise, changes are only allowed if you have a qualifying life event, such as birth, adoption, marriage or divorce. Changes must be made within 31 days of the qualifying event.
