First Nations Benefits
& Pension

T: 250.860.2426 | e: rbaskin@capri.ca | Linkdin

I am originally from Northern BC and a proud member of the Kispiox Band. I feel fortunate to have the unique opportunity to do something I have always wanted to do - work with First Nations. I enjoy travelling throughout BC to meet and work with First Nation Bands and Organizations.

I specialize in both First Nations Group Benefits and Retirement Savings Plans. Being First Nations myself, I am intimately familiar with our culture and the unique needs of First Nations people. I enjoy helping First Nations Organizations design and implement custom plans that encourage and support improved wellness for employees and families. I was part of the Capri Insurance Benefits Division that established the first ever Band Member Plan in Canada which was implemented in 2011. Band Member Plans are a great option many First Nations Organizations aren't aware of. These Plans provide additional Health, Vision and Dental benefits plus Counselling Services which are above and beyond the coverage provided with Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB), now First Nations Health Authority (FNHA). I can also help your Organization establish a Chief & Council benefits plan.

I am actively involved in many sports organizations in varying capacities including coaching, participating on the Board of Directors or just having fun as an athlete. I have enjoyed working with UBCO's Men's Volleyball team for the past several years. I'm also involved in my son's Kelowna Volleyball Club which is both fun and challenging. I have held volleyball clinics in various BC locations as part of my membership with Aboriginal Sport BC. I am proud to be involved in the evolution of Aboriginal Youth Sports in BC. The combination of a fulfilling career along with my passion for sports, gives me great work/life balance.

If you are a First Nations Organization not satisfied with your current Group Benefits or Retirement plans, the level of service you are receiving or if you just have questions, please give me call.
