Team SGS

More benefits start here

We’ve been “all about you” since before it was fashionable. And it’s way more than fashion to us. At Schmunk Gatt Smith & Associates, our statement – More benefits than you planned for™ – is backed by a dedicated, savvy team who walk the talk. Our clients stay with us for the long term. We are the official employee benefit representatives for many of the top associations in British Columbia. When it comes to insurance and group benefits, we’ve definitely been there, done that, and loved every step of the way. We can get you there, too.
