Jason’s primary role is to formulate financial planning, insurance, and customized investment strategies for clients. He also provides corporate clients with group benefits solutions.

When Jason returned to Canada, he took the Canadian Securities Course and began working at a major financial institution.  After a few years, realizing that his clients needed more independent advice, he obtained his Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) professional designation and moved to the independent side of the investment industry to provide advice on a range of financial topics. Jason also has the Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®) designation.

Jason is happily married to his lovely wife, Deidre. They have two extremely outgoing teenage daughters, and a new puppy.
