The counsellor was simply excellent. She listened (an underrated skill!) to everything I said, provided great feedback, investigated my queries thoroughly, and followed up promptly and thoroughly. I am beyond impressed, and I wish I had used this counselling service more in the past! Thank you, and thank you CFIB!

Robert Bailey--CFIB member in Newfoundland

I love how prompt you respond to our requests. I feel so much more confident in making decisions and you save me so much time "googling" for advice! Worth every penny.

Melanie Atwell--CFIB member in B.C.

The counsellor went above and beyond to obtain answers to a couple of my questions. She was able to clarify our rights as an employer within hours of my initial call. It is the first time that I have turned to CFIB for advice and was not disappointed.

Lina Carter--CFIB member in Ontario

The counsellor went above her requirements. She found resources that will be helpful to my employee, during her time of need. I cannot express my appreciation enough for her assistance.
