Co-operators Life Insurance Co. has enlisted group benefits provider Medavie Blue Cross to administer its existing and future group benefits policies in Quebec.

The partnership is a logical step as the Co-operators continues to expand its presence in the province, according to a news release. It noted the company’s plan sponsors won’t experience any changes in their current policies from the joint venture.
