Netflix provides a health benefit allowance of CAD 6,500 after tax annually (paid out bi-weekly) for you to use towards the purchase of an extended health plan of your choice. The allowance is paid as taxable income and you’ll see it as a line-item on your paycheck. 

*We will be implementing a healthcare insurance plan in the future as the headcount in Canada grows which will replace the Health Allowance.

For employees in British Columbia, CAD 1,000 after tax annually will also be added to the allowance as the cost of premium you are required to pay towards the Medical Services Plan. 

Sick Leave and Disability
We realize folks get sick from time to time. In case of a short-term illness or injury, you can use your unlimited time off to rest and get well. If you can’t work for an extended amount of time because of a disabling illness or injury, Netflix will continue to pay you 100% of your salary for up to 3 months.

Additionally, Netflix provides a disability benefit allowance annually to cover personal disability salary continuation insurance premiums. This is included in the healthcare allowance on your payslip.

Retirement Pension
Netflix is not yet able to set up a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) due to the small size of employees in Canada. This will be reviewed as headcount grows.

In lieu of the RRSP, each month Netflix will add 6% of your salary to your salary as a taxable pension contribution until we are able to set up an RRSP. When the RRSP is set up, the 6% will be removed from your salary and Netflix will instead match your contribution to your RRSP up to 6%. 

Life Coverage
We care about the wellbeing of our Netflix team and their loved ones. We are committed to providing a USD equivalent $1.5 million pre-tax benefit to ensure our full-time employees’ beneficiaries are supported financially in the event of loss of life.
