History of Educators Financial Group

In 1975, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation saw a pressing need to look after the financial interests of its members. This was how Educators Financial Group was born.

Today, Educators Financial Group offers services like investing, mortgage, and retirement planning to over 18,000 educational workers in Ontario.
