    Meet fellow members from across Canada and join our lively forum!  We will do introductions and also round table discussion on what advisors are doing new, or changes we will make for 2023.

     Remember how great it is to connect and converse? 

    Which is exactly why we love bringing advisors together each quarter just to meet and talk. 
    Because a stronger network of colleagues and friends makes a big difference in how we view our work and life. 

    Join us next week for an hour of conversation and networking. All advisors are welcome. 

    Because when we decide to show up, be real, and meet others, ...pretty cool stuff happens.

    Advance Care Planning (ACP) is an essential component to life planning. This critical process invites Canadians to reflect and discuss with those closest to them their withes for their future health and/or personal care should they no longer be able to speak for themselves. More and more Canadians are having these important conversations and turning to lawyers and financial planners for guidance and advice. The Living Well, Planning Well resources were developed to support professionals and the Canadian public in this journey.
