At Elevate Financial Strategies, we’re here for you. Times are tough, especially in Alberta. Between running a business, running a family, and running life, we don’t have much leftover to study personal or corporate finance, particularly in the time of Covid-19.

I wouldn’t try to re-wire my kitchen without professional help (sweet mercy) – so why do business owners and families feel like they have to tackle their finances alone? It can be exhausting,  even overwhelming – that’s why we’re here.  We believe you deserve personal advice, customized for you and your specific needs. It’s hard enough to run a business and still enjoy a life, which is why we specialize in the details you may not have time for.  We’ve helped more than 100 small business owners find great benefits, protect their assets, and invest in their future, and we’re here to help you, too.

Chris K. on Alignable

“Committed to the success of each and every client, Ellen is a true pleasure to work with. I have never met a better ambassador for her industry – someone who lives by the Golden Rule and always does what’s right instead of what’s more profitable for her. Do yourself a favour – spend a few moments speaking with her and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. “

Ian M. on Facebook

“This is the first year that I have used Cost Plus to sift medical/dental expenses through my corporation to save taxes. It was simpler than I thought and more importantly, Ellen sent me an email reminder. This is a huge savings for us – deeply grateful for this level of service. Highly recommend Ellen!”
