Our History

We have many offices, with our first dating back decades. Do you remember Eaton’s, the catalogue and department store? Our story begins there.

The Toronto office originally opened in 1904; however, the financial services were only available to employees of Eaton’s. In 1971, located in the iconic Eaton Centre on Yonge Street, the Toronto office became one of the first financial centres in the network to open to the general public. The Toronto branch then re-located to the ground floor of the Desjardins Insurance head office on St. Clair Avenue West. At the end of December 2010, we moved to our Scarborough location.
Our office along the Don Valley Parkway at Steeles Avenue opened in 2003. An office of successful senior advisors and dedicated younger advisors, it sits majestically over-looking the Toronto skyline. We closed this location in November 2019 to move the advisors temporarily to a Scarborough office before they move again to a brand new location!
Two Toronto offices merged with another one of our offices in January 2011 to form this busy office located in Scarborough at McCowan Road and Highway 401.
The Mississauga office is comprised of two of our offices that joined together in January 2011 in a new location in Mississauga. The office is located in a busy commercial section of the city and has our big bright pixel board sign!
The office in Oshawa, conveniently located close to the downtown core, houses advisors and administrative staff from a previous location in Ajax. The move was completed to better serve our clientele in a more centralized location in Durham Region.
