Our Services

Life insurance

Life insurance provides a sense of security by making sure your family is taken care of should something happen to you. We have all the options available, including term, permanent, and even non-medical life insurance to keep your family protected.

Mortgage Insurance

Having a mortgage is one of the biggest financial responsibilities you can take on. Mortgage insurance ensures that your mortgage is paid off should anything happen to you—so you don’t end up leaving your family responsible for your debt.

Critical Illness Insurance

A serious illness such as a heart attack, cancer, or stroke can have a major financial impact on you, your family, and even your business. Critical illness insurance provides a lump sum benefit to make sure you have all you need to focus on recovering instead of how you’ll pay your bills.

Buy/Sell Insurance

It takes a lot of planning to keep your business running smoothly. A premature death, critical illness, or disability of a shareholder can be catastrophic to your business. A properly funded buy/sell agreement with the right insurance ensures that there is a proper payout to make sure the business continues, and ownership stays in the right hands.

Disability Insurance

Your ability to generate income is your greatest asset. An illness or injury shouldn’t have to affect your ability to take care of your family and cover the bills. Disability insurance replaces a portion of your monthly income, allowing you to return to work when you’re able to and not because you need to. 

The Million Dollar Baby Plan

Million dollar baby policies are a stable and tax-efficient way to build savings for your kids and help them pay for major life expenses such as education, purchasing a car, home, or even setting up a business. In addition, it also makes sure that they have lifelong protection. The MDB plan is one of the top ways to provide a bright financial future for your kids.

Our Clients

Every client is unique, and different situations call for different solutions. Whether you’re raising a family, growing your business, or practice—we work to understand your needs and offer the best solutions for you.

What I found that there was a lot more that I can do to optimize my finances. I liked the idea of having disability insurance because as a hairstylist, I rely a lot on my physical ability to make my income. Now I don’t worry as much because I know that I have a back up plan!

Having Lorenzo and Kevin working together on my finances makes it much easier for me to manage everything. It’s great to have professionals like these guys on your side. I can focus on my business knowing that things are taken care of

Aubrey Bonnah-Vink


I like dealing with Will and Lorenzo because I see that they really look out for the person as opposed to selling a product because it makes them a high commission. I’m personally happy with what we’ve done so I feel natural sharing with friends

James Durante, Director, Corporate Challenge Canada


These guys take the time to go through everything, they have an educational approach. They didn’t rush me or use any pushy sales tactics. This is really empowering when it comes to making the right financial decisions

Jonathon Porter, IT Consultant

“They were educational and informative. I felt empowered to make the right decision for myself because everything was explained well and at no point did I feel pushed or rushed. Lorenzo and Will are just great guys to deal with”

Kristopher Bertrand, Millwright

We’ve been wanting to get insured for a while now but we just haven’t gotten around to getting it done because of our busy schedules.. It was great that Will and Lorenzo we’re flexible and mobile and they came to our house, which made it so much easier for us especially with the kids.

 

I was also impressed with their knowledge and communication when it comes to products, and their service was great. I’ve already recommended these guys to my friends and will continue to do so in the future!

Michael & Michelle Villafuerte

I knew life insurance was important, I just didn’t feel the urge to get started until I met Lorenzo. I like how it not only gives me life insurance coverage, it helps me save a bunch of tax while investing for my retirement.

 

I’ve heard it from others before, but hearing it from Lorenzo helped me understand because he kept it in simple terms. I would’ve done it sooner if I would’ve known about it earlier!
