Our History

DFSIN building unrivaled expertise for 115 years in Southwestern Ontario. Here are somes highlights:


The earliest financial centres originally opened in 1904 to serve only the employees of the T. Eaton Company.
In the early 1970’s, the Eaton stores opened financial centres to serve the general public located in the Eaton’s department stores. Hamilton, London, Kitchener, Burlington and St. Catharines were some of the early centres.
In 1999, all branches in operation relocated to new premises and some were consolidated.
Established in 2003, the financial centre located in London was one of the first expansion offices for the DFSIN network. This centre continues to grow and has become very active in the region.
The financial centre in Kitchener has been in operation since 2006 and is located in the business centre on Queen Street South and was amalgamated into South Western Ontario Region in 2016.
The centres in Hamilton and Burlington joined forces in a new location in Jackson Square in downtown Hamilton in 2007
Our centre in the greater Windsor-Essex area is one of the newest DFSIN locations in Canada. It has been in operation since May 2015, serving a dynamic base of advisors throughout the Windsor and Chatham corridor, including operations in Strathroy.
