Many people are looking to invest in GICs at this time of year. As a Registered Deposit Broker, First Foundation can help you get a much better rate than what your bank is offering.
Buying GICs for the safety and security they offer? Why not get the best rate you can at the same time? First Foundation offers great GICs from Oaken Financial and other great partners.

It is helpful...takes time to sit down and do it though.
In preparation for the school season it is time to get organized. Create a document system that suits you and your family.

Thanks for the article Edward. I think you covered the main points really well. If your readers are looking for more information they can visit www.layoffinsurance.ca or our main site, https://www.firstfoundation.ca/insurance/layoff-insurance/, for more information. I noticed there wasn't a link in the article so hopefully this helps.
The main worry for some homeowners in Alberta is whether they’ll lose their jobs and have enough money to be able to pay their mortgage, not whether interest rates will fall. While the Bank of Canada ... Read More

Story
Tagline
President of First Foundation Mortgages and Insurance. Proud husband and father of four.
Introduction
I'd probably introduce myself by saying, "Hi, I'm Gord." If someone asked me where I'm from, I'd tell them I was born and raised in Saskatoon, but left after high school to chase opportunity in Alberta. I'm a U of A School of Business Grad and have been an entrepreneur my entire working life. 

I work pretty hard because I really enjoy it. President of a great little company full of great people - First Foundation Mortgages and Insurance in Edmonton, and providing service throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan. 

We've won some awards and have lots of happy clients, but we're not perfect either...so every day is a challenge to improve and to grow.

You might catch me talking about sports, technology, and cars when I'm not working on the business or spending time with my family.

Ordered a Raven hockey stick to be delivered to Edmonton because I couldn't find one locally. Brittany was a pleasure to work with, the online ordering process was super easy, the communication was great, and the help on the phone was perfect to nail down the shipping quote. Great experience and so good in fact that I'd probably rather order from them than go into one of the stores here in town.

I love it. Great food, great shakes, not another copy cat joint. Fast for what you get. Prices aren't bad, comparable to five guys but better quality imo.

Kyle did a great job on the First Foundation Google My Business Virtual Tour. He took great shots, turned things around quickly for us, and the results are very impressive. It's great service that really helps your business location standout on the search results. Thanks again Kyle!

We required a complete roof replacement after a big hailstorm in August of 2012. Jensen was recommended by our insurance company at the time and, after doing some research and seeing many positive reviews for it, we chose them. The work was done quickly, with a minimal disruption, and the work was done well. The shingles look great, they helped us to pick a colour that would suit our home and have answered questions on a number of occasions over the phone. Highly recommended and very happy with the service and the new roof.

Nicole and Len are great trainers...I benefited greatly from my time with them. The techniques are sound, they bring you along at a pace that's suitable to your fitness level, they're fun, they mix it up, and the facilities are perfect for one-on-one, paired sessions, and small groups. Definitely recommended!

I've had the opportunity to refer clients who are in financial distress to Rebecca at Frederick and Company. She's knowledgeable, helpful, and willing to give people the honest advice that they need to get back on track. Hopefully you'll never need her services but if you or someone you know does, then she's highly recommended.

As a company we refer our mortgage clients to BungoBox Edmonton because we believe in the product and the benefits to our customers. It's always an easy referral to make because we know they'll be well taken care of.
