Many of our mortgage lenders have updated contact information and support for the victims of the Fort McMurray wildfires...so we've put together a list of those resources. Stay strong Alberta! We'll get through this together.
Mortgage lenders have jumped into disaster recovery mode to help borrowers from Fort McMurray to get through this difficult time. We've compiled a list of statements from lenders and contact information to assist.

Super important! You don't want to end up with less coverage than you need...

Insurance information for Fort McMurray evacuees and First Foundation clients.
In the wake of the tragic Fort McMurray wildfires many mortgage lenders and property insurers have stepped up to make sure residents of Fort McMurray have their support.

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.

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 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.
