No insurer holds an ownership interest in my business, nor do I hold a significant interest in any insurance company.

Insurance Compensation

I am compensated by sales commission on policies I sell and may receive a renewal (or service) commission on policies that remain active. Commissions are paid by the insurance company that provides the product you purchased. For certain products such as, Solutions Banking™ brand products and Canada Life mortgages, I may receive a referral fee. If my sales reach a certain level, I may be eligible for additional compensation, such as bonuses, and other benefits, such as professional conferences and related travel expenses. I may also be entitled to participate in a share purchase plan with Canada Life. For business placed through an MGA, compensation may be received from both the insurer and the MGA. MGAs may also provide additional benefits including professional conferences and related travel expenses.

Potential conflict or conflict of interest

If there are any other potential conflicts of interest of which I become aware between me and you I will let you know.
