About Us

Engage. Plan. Prosper.


Impact Financial Planning Inc. was founded on the principle that regardless of financial status, everyone deserves the right to:

  • Be informed and educated on important financial topics

  • Have a comprehensive financial plan that achieves their specific goals

  • Deal with a knowledgeable professional without having to lose a significant portion of their lifetime investment growth due to paying high investment fees

We offer clients throughout Canada (excluding Quebec) the ability to work with a Certified Financial Planner® (CFP®) professional that has over a decade of industry experience. Together we will create a customized, comprehensive plan that sets you on the right path to achieve your financial goals. 

The planning and advice we provide is at a fixed fee. Our company doesn't charge an asset under management percentage on your investments or recommend high fee investments that benefit the investment company and not the client.

  • Work together to create a revised budget as needs or goals change

  • Understand and help establish your own personal retirement goals (i.e. what does retirement look like)

  • Determine the cost needed to achieve your retirement lifestyle and the probability of your current plan meeting these costs

  • Understanding your available government pension benefits and at what age it makes sense to apply for them
