Vince McKay, EPC CPCA
Financial Advisor, Essential Financial

After years in the Canadian Military and later working overseas, Vince started in the life insurance industry working closely with his late father in law, Harold Wiffen.   It was during Harold’s illness that Vince realized his passion for helping people to ensure that their financial affairs were structured to reach their retirement and estate goals. Holding the Certified Professional Consultant on Aging (CPCA) and the Elder Planning Counselor (EPC) designations, Vince has helped his clients realize their retirement goals while still maintaining their lifestyle.

Vince is dedicated to providing the best for his clients and advocates with the industry on a local and national level through his association as a board member of Professional Association of Financial Advisors (ADVOCIS) and as past Vice President of GAMA. His association with both of these organizations allows him the ability to lobby for the needs of his clients.

Vince not only believes in being actively involved in his professional association but strongly believes in giving back to his community as well.  He has volunteered in various leadership roles for the MS Society, Langley Canada Days Celebrations, BC Summer Games, BC Senior Games, Operation Red Nose, Langley Child Development Centre as well as a coach for various sporting organizations and as a trained instructor for the award winning school based program, Roots of Empathy.

Vince has many interests including hockey, golf and boating. His greatest achievement is being a father to three adult daughters who share his passion for sport, community and life.

With a clear focus on ‘Planning for Your Tomorrow, Today” Vince is able to assist clients on various aspects of their planning needs. Through the use of his unique Essential Binder System, Vince helps clients organize their financial documents, keep their financial situation in order, outline their income needs and know that their personal goals can be realized
