We create a comfortable environment to help educate our clients so they understand the impact and effect that all of their financial decisions will have, now and in their future. We believe if clients are aware of the challenges that we all face, it will add also to their peace of mind.

We can discuss the merits of many different life insurance products and determine which product is the best fit for you.

Plan Design Consulting

is critical to the ongoing viability of a Group Benefits Plan. We offer cost-effective and creative solutions to specific employee needs.

Projection of Future Benefit Costs

We provide a detailed analysis of your claim's situation and what is driving your costs including inflation, utilization, new legislative and/or regulatory changes made to provincial plans.
