We Are

Merit National believes the open shop movement benefits the entire country. By promoting open and transparent competition, we all succeed.

We are proud to represent this industry. We believe our members deserve to have access to the best health benefits, training, human resource tools and unwavering advocacy, so they can achieve the highest level of growth. 


CHANGES TO THE 30-DAY LIMITATION FOR PRESCRIPTION DRUGS: Limits were imposed to minimize drug shortages and prevent stockpiling of medication during the pandemic. Pharmacists will now be able to fill prescriptions up to a three-month supply. While the supply levels have seemed to return to normal, certain drugs may still be limited.

While our office remains closed to the public, our team continues to serve our members.

As the situation is fluid, we are committed to sharing the latest information on our News & Events page.

We encourage members to reach out via email at merit@meritnational.com for general inquiries. Our team will respond to your inquiry within two business days.

Please note the Merit Benefits call centre continues to experience higher call volumes. For benefit questions please contact our team via email at merit@meritbenefits.ca
