In Memory of Martin Chambers: It is with our deepest sadness we regret to inform you of the passing of our friend and colleague Martin Chambers. In late November Martin was diagnosed with double pneumonia. This quickly developed into ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) and he was hospitalized at Abbotsford Regional Hospital where he passed away on December 28, 2019. Martin was a caring, compassionate man and an integral part of our team. He was a dear friend to us, both in our professional and personal lives. You always knew he would be there for you with a helping hand, or a funny joke to make you smile. He was incredibly intelligent, but strived to remain humble and kind. Many of you got to know him over the years since he joined our team and he built many relationships with our clients and friends. He will be truly missed by all of us, but most of all his wife Margaret. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Margaret and her family.
Did you know we send out custom Christmas cards to our clients and friends each year? This photo is the front of our Christmas card, “Merry Mousemas,” that we sent out this year, painted by Sheryl Boury in our office.
Cindy had the honour to present the Abbotsford Royal Canadian Legion with her annual donation this Remembrance Day. This day is about the sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of our fellow Canadians who expected little in return and who are too often forgotten.

Cindy, Sheryl and Susan were so happy to receive the invitation to support and congratulate Harold Janzen for receiving the Community Builders' Award from Archway Community Services. This yearly award ceremony acknowledges those who have made an outstanding contribution to Archway and the community. It also marked their 50th year anniversary. They help people in crisis from women escaping violence to people struggling with addictions, and assist other from newcomers in Canada to people with developmental disabilities.
Have you attended any of our Educational Seminars and Events? Cindy hosts a select few throughout the year, with guest speakers and are complimentary to attend. This one, “Wills and Wisdom” discussed estate planning and preparing your will BEFORE you die. (Upcoming events are added to the “Events” page on this website.)
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In support and memory of the many people whose lives have been affected by breast cancer, Cindy Boury Private Wealth Management supports the Canadian Cancer Society by purchasing pink ribbon pins and mailing them to our clients and friends.
Each year through the Raymond James Cares Initiative, Cindy donates to the World Wildlife Fund Canada and the team chooses an endangered animal to symbolically adopt. WWF sends a stuffed toy of that animal. Since we have done this a couple of years now...Our animal-family has been growing! (Our "office-dog" is in the center.)
Cindy hosted an evening educational seminar with BNN Bloomberg's Andrew McCreath: "Managing Risk vs Return Late in a Cycle." Andrew is a Markets Commentator on BNN Bloomberg TV, appearing on The Open and Weekly with Andrew McCreath. www.bnnbloomberg.ca
