We do employee group benefit plans – and nothing but employee group benefit plans!


We’ve been helping business owners attract and keep great employees for more than 30 years. We focus on firms in the GTA with up to 150 employees. As an independent broker, we work for the client, not the insurance company. We can save money on your current plan, or help build a new plan that delivers the best bang for your budget.

Here's what makes us stand out from other brokers:

  • We negotiate to get you the lowest premium
  • We provide quarterly premium projections
  • We help you see beyond the lowest bid
  • We know the competitive landscape for benefit plans
  • We help you communicate your plan

Our president, John Bascom, brings special value to small businesses. Because he focuses only on this market, he knows it well. He understands how to get the best value for your premium dollar. And John will stick around. Even if your firm has turnover in the accounting or personnel areas, John will be there to ensure continuity and good value for your employee benefit plan investment.
