Employee Benefit Plan
Why having a benefits plan is important?
BCCA Employee Benefit Trust is VICA’s plan. Is it yours?
“Meeting the needs of employees is essential for our members’ success. Employee benefits are no longer optional for an employer who wants to thrive, which is why VICA offers this service to members.” – Rory Kulmala, VICA CEO.
Over 50 years ago, the Vancouver Island Construction Association and other regional construction associations across BC created a fund to provide affordable and comprehensive employee benefit plans to VICA members – the VICA Benefits Program. This program has grown and evolved over the years into the BCCA Employee Benefit Trust, the organization that administers the benefits plan.
We understand the importance of health and wellness for you, your employees and their families. We also know that employee benefits are an essential commitment from employers to recruit and retain valued employees. That is why VICA provides our members access to a comprehensive, affordable, and cost-effective benefits program.
Who uses our benefit plan?
