    I am enjoying the benefits and perks that Douglas College offers. Aside from health and dental benefits, I can get my prescription eyeglasses for up to $500 dollar worth and I get free use of the fitness centre, a good array of free fitness classes (yoga, zumba, spin, circuit training, etc.) and discounted rates for a personal trainer. The pension plan, with the College putting in more than the dollars I put in makes me feel secure about future retirement. Getting the extra life insurance coverage that is 3 times my annual salary is also a plus.

    Best: the dental plan coverage is really good. Never had to pay anything from my pocket. They also have a program that offers counselling outside of the college. It’s for short-term only, but it’s good to have it. Worst: chiropractor, physiotherapist etc have a minimal coverage (we get $10 back from the amount we paid, no matter how much we paid).

    Dental coverage covers 100%, which is fantastic. On a short-term contract the other medical coverage is horrible. They cover $10 for each of the first 5 visits for RMT, chiro, etc., and then only a total of $275 per year per practitioner.
