Katie Deering

CFP® , CLU® , QAFP™

Financial Planner*

Mutual Fund Investment Specialist**

I am the founder and owner of Deering Financial and Insurance Services Inc., a company that offers comprehensive and customized solutions for your financial and insurance needs. I have been in this industry since 2012, working with Co-operators where I acquired my general insurance, life and mutual funds licences.


I have also earned several professional designations, such as Certified Financial Planner (CFP), Qualified Associate Financial Planner (QAFP), and Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU). These credentials reflect my commitment to excellence and continuous learning in the field of financial planning and insurance.


My expertise lies in helping clients achieve financial security and peace of mind, regardless of their situation or goals. I have worked with parents of disabled children, helping them with estate planning to protect their child’s eligibility for assistance. I have also worked with family business owners, assisting them with complex succession plans.


I am passionate about providing personalized and quality service to my clients and work hard to build long-term relationships based on trust and respect. I look forward to meeting you and discussing how I can help you with your financial and insurance needs.
