Helping Canadians since 1938
With the Great Depression of the 1930s creating government funding challenges for hospitals, Manitoba was the first province in Canada to establish a Blue Cross plan.
Forward-thinking medical and business professionals recognized the importance of prepaid health care plans to provide financial security.
Other provinces saw the benefits of this approach and new, not-for-profit Blue Cross organizations spread across Canada to now deliver personal and group health coverage plus travel and life insurance.
In Our Community
Each year, Blue Cross delivers over $7 million in community investments.
With a special focus on helping children in their communities, whether through supports for active living, mental health, food banks and more, Blue Cross is proud to be engaged locally right across Canada.
Celebrating 30 years with Make a Wish® Canada, Blue Cross is proud to have supported over 25,000 Wishes with Blue Cross Travel Insurance.
