Women's financial planning

If you've been looking for a different approach to financial planning - a more personal, caring approach based on trust and mutual respect, you just may have found it. Choosing a financial services advisor is a bit like choosing a doctor.  It's a relationship you're likely to have for a long time.  You want someone who can provide you with the best quality advice but also, someone who will listen to your concerns - someone you might describe as having good 'cents' and fine sensibility.

After more than a decade of service, Women's Financial Planning has earned a solid reputation for its unique, personal and caring approach as well as its strong commitment to education and learning.


As the first Canadian company to launch a program of educational seminars on financial planning for women, we recognize that women's financial needs are changing.

With more women in the work force today and female entrepreneurship on the rise globally[1], women are expressing a heightened interest in money matters and there is a growing demand for information on financial planning. Women have more choices today and most are choosing to be better informed when it comes to making financial decisions.


Whether you're single or married, raising a family, running a business or working at a full-time job, it is critical to have a financial plan. It's the first step to securing your future and realizing your goals.

Everyone has goals. But, not everyone has a financial plan. A financial plan can help turn your goals into reality. Before you decide to meet with a financial advisor, it's a good idea to take the time to put your goals down on paper and review all of your assets and liabilities.

What goals do you have? Would these be some of them?

For you:

  • Travel
  • Own your own home, or a vacation home
  • Retire with a steady income
  • Return to school, or take a sabbatical

For family:

  • Provide for your children's education
  • Ensure your family's safety and security
  • Establish an emergency fund

Let’s start with a financial plan based on your goals. We will then be able to show you how we can help turn them into reality. 


Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network now has a national network of advisors who have chosen to specialize in women's financial planning. These professional advisors offer today's women the assurance of quality financial advice. One-on-one or in a relaxed seminar setting, these advisors will help you navigate through the maze of financial products available and chart a realistic course which you can follow.
