We offer quality consulting and litigation support to any stakeholder involved in an adversarial proceeding. Our actuarial evidence team is comprised of experienced actuarial professionals, including three consulting actuaries who have qualified as expert witnesses in the courts of British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Ontario. We focus on providing quality consulting advice and expert reports that are prepared in accordance with accepted actuarial practices in Canada.
