Throughout the challenges of recent months, we've continued to safely serve investors' needs. As we gradually reopen our offices to in-person appointments, our approach will be thoughtful and individualized to each location. Learn more.
During these uncertain times, we're here for you – ready to listen, support and navigate this together. We care about your physical health and your financial health. And just like you, we're keeping up with the latest news about the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and its impact on our communities and the markets.
This page contains the latest information on the decisions and subsequent guidance we are providing. As the situation evolves, this page will be updated.
After working virtually with new and existing clients over the past few months, we have decided to begin the process of gradually reopening our offices to in-person meetings. Our reopening approach will be thoughtful, measured against data from health authorities, provincial and municipal guidelines, and the local health environment. A final consideration, and one of the most important, will be the personal choice of our local branch teams about when to reopen to the public.
Once your local office reopens, you will notice steps taken to protect your health and well-being. These include following required policies and best practices on social distancing, cleaning/sanitizing and other hygiene measures. Access to our reopened offices will be by appointment only, and in-person meetings will be spaced out to allow for a thorough cleaning in between each meeting. We want everyone to feel safe and secure as soon as they walk through the front door.
Throughout this process, our virtual meeting options remain in place to serve you.
We're dedicated to strengthening personal relationships with our clients and providing the information you need. This is true today more than ever.

Give your financial advisor a call. Ask all your questions. Maybe you’re wondering about cash on hand or money you can easily access, progress toward your long-term goals, such as retirement or paying for education, or what type of protection strategy you should have for your specific situation. We'll listen and work through any challenges together.
If you don't have a financial advisor, we can help with that too. It can be so reassuring to partner with someone who will listen and understand what’s important to you. And having someone help you make decisions during smooth and not-so-smooth situations can make all the difference.
Just as in other times of uncertainty and crisis – our country, our communities, our neighbours and our firm come together to help each other through.
