Our team is proud to donate both time and financial support to several non-profit organizations here in Kanata and the greater Ottawa area.

What’s your philanthropic legacy?
While charitable donations are a wonderful thing at any level of giving, some of our clients have chosen to make substantial philanthropic gifts through their estate plan or by utilizing the Aqueduct Foundation through Scotia Trust. This is a great option and an important part of many wealth management plans.
