We are Canada's leading independent provider of group retirement plans

A history of putting our clients first

Open Access Limited was established in 1997, but our roots go back to 1928 with the founding of Hodgson Roberton Laing as Canada’s first independent investment counselling firm. Today we are changing the way group retirement plans are run by putting plan members first.


We’ll go above and beyond

Service excellence is one of our guiding principles. Its why we provide all our plan sponsors with a dedicated account manager. Its also why we work with our clients to custom build a service model catering to their unique needs. As a service provider, we know that we are at our best when client satisfaction is at its highest.


We focus on ONE thing and ONE thing only

We believe in being specialists rather than generalists. This is why we focus exclusively on group retirement plans. Its what we have done for more than 20 years and we're quite good at it!
