Putting You First

We are pleased to introduce the new CUPE Education Worker’s Benefits Trust (EWBT) Benefits Plan. It’s tailor-made for eligible CUPE education sector employees, designed to protect you and your family.

Full plan details – including who is eligible, enrolment deadlines, what’s covered and what’s not are available January 8th on the CUPE EWBT website at as well as on OTIP’s secure member website once you have enrolled.

The benefits plan is funded by the CUPE EWBT, however, members are required to pay a share of the monthly cost based on the number of regularly scheduled hours of work per week. Certain restrictions, limitations, and exclusions will apply. In the event of your death before retirement, family members can continue health and dental coverage at no charge for 12 months.

This plan covers customary charges for the indicated services and supplies. All covered services and supplies must represent reasonable treatment. Treatment is considered reasonable if it is accepted by the Canadian medical profession, it is proven to be effective, and it is of a form, intensity, frequency and duration essential to diagnosis or management of the disease or injury.

The plan is administered by OTIP, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to Ontario’s education workers.
