We changed benefit advisors about a year ago to Brian and Brenda Shaw. It has turned out so much better than I expected. We have received great value since they have re-marketed our plan and successfully renegotiated low premiums.

Our staff can contact them directly to discuss any health or dental related issues they may have. They have also assisted with some complicated employee issues and have resolved them positively. I am just sorry we didn't change sooner, as they  have made my job less stressful.

In short, we highly recommend them. If any business owners are looking for local, hands-on, knowledgeable, service-oriented professionals to work with on their employee benefit plans, you should definitely contact Brenda or Brian.

Before I switched our company over to Freedom 55 Financial for our benefits plan, I never even thought about it. It was just a bill I paid every month. It never occurred to me that there was service to go along with it. I was lucky to see a representative once a year. Then I took the leap and switched. All I can say is these people are AMAZING. Not only did they get me a better benefit plan but they worked with me to set up all of my employees on a group RRSP plan. The extra benefits of having someone around to help some of our younger staff get their RRSP savings going and helping them with their financial future is exciting -- it builds company loyalty in a way that nothing else can. Brenda and Brian are simply a pleasure to work with. They help with administrative issues and are more than happy to answer our questions anytime and do the follow up for us. Thank you!

Brenda and Brian came to us with the promise that they would:

  • find our company a superior benefit package;
  • guarantee a reduced rate (that would benefit both our company and employees); and
  • assure us they would do all of the work involved in order to make the transition a smooth and painless process.


I am happy to say that they delivered on all counts! It was quite an undertaking and we appreciate them taking the time to go through each and every step along the way. We are very pleased with our new benefits plan provider. We also really appreciate the quick responses to our questions and concerns. They have far exceeded our expectations.

We recommend Brian and Brenda Shaw to act on your behalf in finding the most efficient and affordable benefit plan for your needs. The Shaw’s provided our company with up to date statistics, pricing and benefits on a variety of companies that they felt would suit Borek Construction’s requirements. Once we had chosen the insurer best suited to us, they assisted with the set-up. They answered all questions and concerns. The Shaw’s made the transition from our old benefit plan to our new plan seamless. They have kept us informed and updated as to the status of our plan, and put forward recommendations beneficial to maintaining an efficient plan for all. In conclusion, Borek Construction’s experience with the Shaw’s has been exceptional, and again we highly endorse their expertise
