DAC is Canada’s pre-eminent educational event for the top wealth advisors in the tax and financial services.

As an industry and as individuals lucky enough to live in Canada, it’s a great time to work “above our privilege” - that is, to set higher goals, improve services and to give back more in mentorship and engagement to a new client base with vastly different demands of their tax and financial advisors.

THE CHALLENGE? To strive for higher standards of care, a strategic look at the new issues that shape demographic needs, and the resulting tax and economic policies in Canada is critical, in order to interpret what that means for clients in the tax and financial services.

Experts and visionaries from all sides of the industry including noted senior leaders and serious up-and-comers, will help you change your mindset, refresh your vision, rework your mission and then execute on it!

WHO ATTENDS? Join approximately 200 delegates from across Canada for a rich educational experience and an outstanding time networking with other like-minded advisors who quickly become new friends and colleagues. One quarter come from the tax accounting profession; the rest are investment, insurance and wealth planning specialists. This mix guarantees lively collaboration and engaged learning by the multiple stakeholders who participate in stewarding family wealth.

“We are pulling together an agenda featuring the leading thinkers in the financial services, to prepare you and your clients for business building in the future.”  Says Evelyn Jacks, President of Knowledge Bureau and founder of DAC.  “In bringing DAC home to Canada, many more of us will be able to participate in thinking about the crossroads of change we are facing.  It is going to be an interesting, insightful and thought-provoking educational conference and we are excited about this opportunity.”
