Member-exclusive services through the ONN Purchasing Program

The ONN Purchasing Program is presented by the Ontario Nonprofit Network and Round Table Procurement Services. Below include member-exclusive services available as an ONN member. View the full list of ONN Purchasing Program services. 

Employee Benefits Program

The ONN Employee Benefits Program is part of our commitment to supporting decent work in the nonprofit sector. This comprehensive benefits plan is affordable, flexible, and tailored for the sector.

The benefits program is underwritten by Manulife Financial, a leading Canadian-based financial services company. It is part of our Purchasing Program, developed in partnership with Round Table Procurement Services.

By pooling small group benefit dollars together with those of large groups, our program is able to offer stable rates, greater flexibility in benefits choices, and coverage for some groups that might otherwise have difficulty finding benefits.

The program offers:

  • Comprehensive and flexible options
  • Lower expenses and stable premiums
  • Regular plan enhancements
  • Ease of administration
  • Exceptional claims service
  • Higher maximums and non-evidence limits
