Dr. Ian WexlerFounder (1959-2013)

The founder of Protect Insurance, Dr. Ian Wexler was proud to have become one of Canada’s leading insurance advisors and specialists for professionals, executives, and business owners.

Dr. Wexler's story is known by many who came in contact with him.  As a young dentist, he was diagnosed with a rare illness that made it impossible for him to continue his dentistry practice. He became a crusader for proper planning and coverage to address life's unknowns. In the course of pursuing this campaign to make sure what happened to him didn't happen to others, he built an incredibly strong and highly-focused insurance practice.

Unfortunately, life dealt Dr. Wexler and his family another cruel blow when he passed away at the age of 53.

He was a nationally recognized speaker on life and disability insurance issues for professionals, executives, and business owners. He was a guest speaker on behalf of all major insurance companies including Great West Life, Canada Life, and Manulife. As well as he presented to Scotia bank, TD, Independent Financial Brokers of Canada, and numerous professional associations across Canada on topics ranging from from insurance issues to Business Success and Management and Maximizing Client Relationships.

He authored over 60 articles published in professional journals including The Professional Advisory.

Under his leadership, Protect Insurance was the recipient of Great West Life’s prestigious Award of Excellence in Living Benefits for being the top living benefits advisor in Canada for eight years.

Dr. Wexler lived in Toronto with his wife Risa, and their three children, Callie, Landon, and Chase. RIP.
