About Derek L. Chase

After growing up on Vancouver Island, it was not a difficult decision to return to its natural beauty and recreational opportunities in 1993, after spending eight years in Vancouver for schooling and articling with the international accounting firm Coopers & Lybrand (now PricewaterhouseCoopers).

Being able to offer debt help assistance to individuals and corporations on a more intimate basis was a driving force in completing a “second CPA” by becoming licensed by the Federal Government as a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (previously Trustee in Bankruptcy) in 1997.

It is extremely satisfying to be able to witness lives change for the positive due to a restructuring of financial affairs. When not at work, time can be easily spent with my wife Jacquie and two children, coaching high school sports, golfing or donating time at the Salvation Army.
