What you need to know

You’re eligible for most Workday benefits on your first day, but you need to opt in to some of them. Don’t get left out.

Medical, dental, and vision

Simply go to Workday to sign up and add dependants to your medical, vision, and dental plan. If you live in British Columbia, you’ll also need to enroll in the Medical Services Plan (MSP) on the BC website.

Workday Canada Retirement Savings Plan

You’ll receive a task in Workday to enrol in the retirement plan within your first 30 days of employment. You'll need to activate your account on Sun Life's website when you receive your welcome letter from Sun Life.

You must contribute at least 2% of your basic salary to participate. But you should really consider contributing 6% so you can get as much free money as possible from Workday! Change your contributions in Workday or your investment strategy at any time on Sun Life’s website.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP)

You may only enrol in the Employee Stock Purchase Plan during one of the semi-annual enrolment periods following your hire date, one in May and one in November.

You will receive communications ahead of each ESPP enrolment period. To enrol during the enrolment period, find the enrolment task on your Workday home page. Click on that link, or open it from your Workday Inbox.
