Please know that Henry Block gave me excellent advice and service with my recent claim for a critical illness diagnosis. Don’t know what I would have done without the funds to manage through this health project. Henry’s wisdom, knowledge and support, and that of Canada Life, was exceptional and gratefully received. Thank you Henry for taking good care of my insurance needs for so many years. I would highly recommend Henry Block of Block Financial & Insurance Services Inc. for his caliber of professionalism and compassion.

My husband and I met Henry about ten years ago. Our investments had been doing rather poorly and we decided to move them to Block Financial, which proved to be an excellent decision. Henry treats our investments like his own, and we have been very happy with the results.
When my husband chose to leave our marriage, Henry spent countless hours going over our finances with us, thereby saving us the time and expense of having to work it all out with a lawyer. Whenever we needed him, Henry was there for us, and never made us feel like it was an imposition.
With kindness and compassion - and endless patience - Henry explained our options, and helped us reach a financial settlement that was fair to both of us. He handled everything with such tact, and as a result we both remain firm friends with Henry, and are more than happy to leave our separate investments in his capable hands.
I will always be grateful for Henry's friendship and support through this most difficult time of my life. I'm glad Henry considers his work "fun", because I don't ever want him to retire!

In 2008 we embarked on a new adventure in purchasing a farm. Thankfully we crossed paths with Henry one day as he was dealing with the farm's previous owners. Immediately we were struck by his personable and genuine character. Without hesitation, as soon as we discovered his line of work we made an appointment to sit down and discuss our financial plans and dreams. His organization, knowledge and respect for our ideas solidified a professional relationship founded in trust and faith. Henry goes above and beyond our expectations treating our money as if it was his own, because of his commitment to our future, we are confident in our financial future. We proudly recommend Henry to friends and family.

I have worked with Henry in various capacities over the past 26 years. He has always been enthusiastic, hard-working, determined and ethical in the pursuit of his clients’ best interests. I like the fact that I can phone him at 6:00 A.M. and find him already working at his desk. Henry has my complete confidence.

We have been clients of Henry since the early 1980's. Henry has been very professional and "up front" with us in all areas of our investments. We have never spent a single moment not trusting his work or advice. If we have any questions about any of our investments he is available to listen and guide us through our decisions.
He has always provided information about market changes and helped us make changes in those markets when we feel it is beneficial to us.
Henry's interest in our financial well being comes first. We are very confident and fortunate to have Henry as our financial adviser. We can sleep at night knowing our finances are well looked after.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Henry for more than 50 years. Two things have not changed about Henry...his smile and the fact he is so personable. He has always been about “people”. We have trusted Henry’s advice with our life insurance and investments for over 30 years and will continue to do so. We have recommended him to family and friends with complete trust and confidence. In Henry’s words, his work is “fun” and we hope his “fun” will continue for many more years, so others can get to know him both personally and professionally. Thanks Hank!

Henry Block of Block Financial and Insurance Services Inc., has provided me with a level of service that has far exceeded my expectations. He replies to my phone calls and emails while he’s on vacation, after hours, etc. He is rarely if ever, unreachable.
With many years of experience behind him, Henry’s level of expertise and knowledge in the investment industry are unsurpassed, and it shows in the expert financial advice he provides to his clients.
His business practices stem from a code of conduct and professionalism of the highest order. In my opinion – a rare find in today’s world.
I consider myself fortunate to be a client and have complete confidence that Henry has my best interests at heart and will manage my funds to that end.

My business relationship with Henry Block has spanned 13 years. Throughout this time, my roles have included: Vice President of Sales for his office, Managing General Agent representing his office, clients and staff then finally as a fellow colleague operating within the Canadian Insurance Industry.
Henry cares deeply for his client’s needs and works extremely hard to accommodate them. He also is completely dedicated those who entrust him for their financial planning, investments and insurance portfolios.
I know that when I retire and if I’m in need of someone to handle my financial affairs I’ll be calling Henry, for no other reason than the fact that he’s the best.

I have worked with Henry for over 25 years, his understanding of insurance has helped me to choose the correct paths for myself and my family for both my personal and business needs. Henry's understanding of the market is not such of timing but knowing the idea of cycles and whims and to prepare yourself either to be protective or aggressive. He reminds you to take the emotion out of investing your wealth, to protect it and let it grow.

We have known Henry for many years. He came to Duck Lake at the beginning of his teaching career and built a home here. He got involved in the community and encouraged adult activities such as exercises for adults, ball games, gym activities as well a working with students and their programs. We then asked him to be our financial advisor after our advisor passed away. Trusting his past commitments in the teaching field, we felt we could trust him to do his best to help us manage our finances. It has been a pleasure to know and work with Henry.

Our acquaintance with Henry Block has a long time span. From the first time that we had business relations to this day Hank has been the mediator of some very urgent insurance issues and the reliable solution for us. I personally have the appreciation that when a proposition is to be approached Hank always embarked upon it immediately. This is to say that the areas that I am not acquainted with (and no person can be fluent in all fields of modern complicated life or business) Hank did his work smoothly, properly, non-procrastinate, and honestly and achieved the intended results. I have not yet had an event turn out different than presented. I have personally dealt with others in the insurance field and have not yet had the peace and confidence that Hank has provided. Personal conduct is of highest honor and degree.
