The most widely recognized financial planning designation in Canada and worldwide, the Certified Financial Planner® designation provides assurance to Canadians that the design of their financial future rests with a professional who will put their clients’ interests ahead of their own.

These skills, along with a commitment to advanced education, enable them to provide you with the kind of service that you not only want, but deserve.


The Fellow of CSI (FCSI®) is the pinnacle financial services credential and the highest honour in Canadian financial services.
