The Beagle Benefits Story

Beagle Benefits Inc. is an independent consulting agency and brokerage for employee benefits plans. After nearly two decades of experience in the industry, we launched in 2016 with the goal to provide best of breed benefits for small businesses.

In addition to the obvious dog reference, “best of breed” is also a technical term for an à la carte solution that delivers the greatest value in its category. To us, this means providing expert advice and services that are flexible enough for the needs of a diverse workforce, and still affordable for any size of business.

At its core, employee benefits is all about putting valuable healthcare dollars in the hands of your employees in the most cost-effective way. If you’re a small business owner who wants to provide great healthcare benefits to your employees, we want to help you accomplish that.

We love living in the Quinte Region, and strongly believe in supporting our local community. In our downtime, you might run into us at the farmer’s Market, the library, Chamber of Commerce events, or walking our beagles around town.
