How Affinity partnerships work for you

As a member of VIU's Alumni Association you are entitled to receive alumni benefits, and you can access special group rates and exclusive products and services that assist you in your personal and professional life.

Affinity partners offer our alumni the benefits of group buying power. This means as a VIU alum you can get great group rates for exclusive products and services. When calling one of our partners for a quote or registering for services, identify yourself as an alum from VIU to receive the exclusive group rate.

Pet Plus Us

Accidents happen. Pets get sick.

You can’t predict if and when your pet will need to go to the veterinarian, but you can be ready!

Pets Plus Us is Different - Here's How they Stand Out

  • Know your policy coverage upfront - no surprises later!
  • Coverage for examination fees and tax
  • One deductible per policy year, not per incident
  • Great customer service
