    I liked very much how caring my agent was to ensure I get my T4 slip from my employer who gave a little trouble at first.

    When my original account manager, Oisin Walsh went on vacation, Alex Laza took over seamlessly. Both were very responsive and went out of their way to explain things and to provide information. I work in a support environment myself and can honestly say, I am well impressed.
