The benefits team will help you to setup and administer your employee benefits.


The benefits office administers all personnel benefit plans (medical, extended health, dental, life insurance and long term disability insurance) for faculty and staff.

Benefits vary significantly by employee group. Contact us for information about your individual benefits.

Our team determines eligibility and administers the enrollment process for the UVic pension plans. The pensions and investments office administers all other aspects of the pension plans.


High cost specialty drugs are used by a small amount of members but the cost to health plans is significant and growing. To help clients manage these costs, and to ensure the sustainability of health plans Pacific Blue Cross is implementing a Prior Authorization Program for High Cost Drugs starting April 18, 2016.
