We are Taking In-Person Appointments

While we can still accommodate virtual meetings with you over the phone or over video, our office is open to in-person visitors by appointment. We do have some protocols in place, so contact your advisor directly should you wish to arrange a meeting at our office. If there are any changes to the provincial or local health guidelines, we will update you.

Local Businesses We Love

This time of year always bring a certain warmth to our beautiful community – despite the cold weather. We thought we’d highlight some local business we love. This is not a complete list (it was hard to pick!), but we encourage you to visit these local businesses in downtown Collingwood as you prepare for the holidays, or if you’re simply up for a visit to the area. We hope to make this an ongoing feature as there are so many great businesses to choose from in our gorgeous community. And be sure to check out the Collingwood Downtown Facebook page for updates on special events over the winter season.
  • Coriander Life— We commended them for putting together a fabulous digital platform when the pandemic hit. They managed to connect online while their doors were closed with a range of fashion shows and online access to their stores via social media. They have such a wide variety of unique gift ideas (and many of them local!). This is one of the best places for fun and poignant greeting and birthday cards!
  • Metra Fashion House— This store has brought Collingwood a great selection of some very fashionable yet affordable casual and business clothes. Their rotating fashion is always on point for you or someone on your list.
  • Elaine Dickinson— A Collingwood fashion institution! If you need a dress for a special occasion or event, Elaine will put you into something you might never think to try on but will end up looking amazing in.
  • Blue Ridge Meats— This hometown butcher will accommodate anything you need, whether you are a foodie or one in the making. Try their homemade pancetta – it is fabulous.
  • 1858 Caesar Bar— Great to visit and great to stock up for your holiday brunches. Try their Dill Caesar Elixir!


Why You Should Work with an Independent Wealth Advisor

We acknowledge banks have their place for day-to-day transactions. However, their other products may or may not benefit the average person when looking at long-term goals. With upcoming changes to be announced soon, we put together some of the benefits of working with an independent financial advisor to avoid some of the common misconceptions about your bigger life decisions. You can read it here.

All the best for 2022!

As we reflect upon 2021 and look ahead to 2022, one constant is certain: we are grateful for you, our clients. We value your trust and know you will call on us if there is anything we can do to help you along life’s journey.
