A Legacy of Financial Wellbeing
Scott’s commitment to health and overall wellbeing extended to that of his CCS team. Always one to take someone under his wing, and encouraging them to plan for their future, Scott believed in providing a ‘hand up’ not a ‘hand out.’ Peta Wales, President & CEO of CCS acknowledges, “It became evident to me upon succeeding Scott after his retirement, that I had inherited an incredible organization with a culture of caring so rarely seen – not just for the clients and communities we serve, but for each other. It is to Scott’s credit that the organization holds fast to his values of wise stewardship, honesty, integrity, and compassion.”
It is with immense sadness that we announce the loss of Scott. He passed away on June 17, 2023, highly regarded and respected for a career spent making a tangible difference in the lives of millions of Canadians. All those who knew him will be forever grateful that his family shared their father, husband, son, and brother with the nation. Scott leaves behind an indelible legacy and a team motivated and inspired to continue helping, educating, and giving hope to millions more.
