We want to thank you for the time you took to help us fill out our claim form. You did that so graciously.

"We have had dealings with insurance brokers over many years in the UK, Europe and other international businesses and rarely, if ever, found a company so dedicated to their clients as "David Cummings Insurance Services", Jason and Gwyneth were extremely professional in all their dealings and particularly conscientious in ensuring we received the correct product, at the right time. Their understanding of the changing requirements in the Super Visa and Parental Sponsorship immigration market was most encouraging and made our progress through the mine field of legislation very much smoother than it would otherwise have been. Our sincere thanks to all at DCIS and we can state without hesitation that we confidently recommend their excellent service"
 -  Walter and Moira (PG-1 Super-Visa Visitors)

To Whom It May Concern,

My wife, Margaret, and I have used the services of David Cummings Insurance Services for many years.  Until recently, these services have been relatively straightfoward dealing with travel and short business ventures outside of the country; however, due to an extended contract for a client in Los Angeles, we were faced with a lot more choices and, consequently, needed a lot more input in order to decide what was best for the client and us.

In this instance, we were very pleased to work with Gwyneth Laidlaw, who researched many options on our behalf and enabled us to present both reasonable financial packages as well as full medical coverage to our employer.  The attention to detail was characteristic of all the Gwyneth did as she highlighted the 'pros and cons' of differing policies as well as executed the billings and mailing of documents to reach us as we travelled.

We cannot emphasize enough how pleased we have been with David Cummings Insurance Services over the years and our recent dealing with Gwyneth Laidlaw is just the icing on the cake!

Yours truly,

To Whom It May Concern:

It gives me great pleasure to recommend to you David Cummings Insurance Services. Having worked with the staff at David Cummings Insurance over the past twelve months, I can attest that they are highly skilled professionals who provide outstanding service to each and every client.... They are an important part of our team as we make UBC and Vancouver a welcoming place for international students....

Our institution has been so impressed with their services that, after ten years of informal affiliation, we chose David Cummings Insurance as the accredited broker of record for our new mandatory insurance program for new international students.... As we are not experts in insurance, our staff has relied heavily on the wise counsel of David Cummings and his staff, with excellent results. The mandatory program is going so well that we will expand it next year to include over 400 incoming exchange students.

Let me say again what a delight it has been to work with David Cummings Insurance Services thus far. I recommend them most highly and would be happy to speak with you further if I can provide further information. My hat goes off to David Cummings and his staff for their dedication, hard work, and commitment to helping their clients—and our administrators—breathe a little easier.
