Important Information – Travel Emergency Assistance Program

Travel Emergency Assistance Program

Our Travel Emergency Assistance Program* provides your employees with some peace of mind when travelling. In the event of a travel medical emergency, employees can contact our travel assistance partner, Allianz Global Assistance for 24-hour assistance.

* All plans are subject to specific limits and maximums. Employees should review their Benefit Booklet for full coverage details.

Important Reminders

Important reminders for employees planning on travelling outside of Canada:

Check their Benefit Cards prior to travelling for the following information:

  • four-digit Allianz Global Assistance ID Number – 9094*,
  • Group Policy and Certificate Numbers, and
  • Emergency Travel Assistance contact phone numbers.

*Some older Benefit Card versions may not have the four-digit ID number. If the four-digit ID number does not appear on their Benefit Card, employees can write the four-digit number on their cards or go on the Plan Member website and print a new one.

Travel Emergency Assistance applies only to designated countries and may change from time to time. It is the responsibility of the employee to inquire prior to his/her departure whether services apply in the country they are visiting.

For travel updates, employees can visit the Canadian government website at http://travel.gc.ca or call Allianz Global Assistance at the following numbers for pre-travel information:

  • In USA/Canada 1-800-321-9998
  • Elsewhere call collect 519-742-2800

The Travel Emergency Assistance Program covers travel medical emergencies only. Coverage for events such as trip cancellation, loss of luggage and trip interruption is not included under this program. We suggest employees obtain additional coverage for these events.

Staff and Ezlabor

When logging into Ezlabor to record your time, you can also view your timecard.

By viewing your timecard, you can ensure that all your hours worked have been entered and approved by viewing the current pay period range.  By checking this, particularly at the end of a pay period, you will know your hours have all been recorded and there should be no need for “missed shifts” not being paid.

Full time staff can also view sick and vacation bank accruals by clicking on the My Benefits tab.

By selecting the My Info tab, you can check your personal information and ensure your address is correct.

If it needs to be updated please email JHacking@clgw.ca or ABukowski@clgw.ca
