Graeme Treeby is the parent of 3 children, the youngest of whom, Jenny, has Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay, PDD and a number of other issues. In 1990, he and his wife first entered into the realm of planning for people with disabilities when they attempted to plan for Jenny's financial future.
It was at that point when they came to realize that there were a multitude of questions, but few answers. Over the next several years, he and his wife researched the problem and ultimately discovered that there were affordable planning tools and techniques which would allow them to provide for Jenny's long term needs.
It seemed logical for Graeme to permanently give up his Accounting Career to share this information with other families throughout the province of Ontario. Since 1993, that is exactly what he has done.
In 1997 he co-founded The "Special Needs" Planning Group. Through that organization, he has concentrated his efforts on sharing information with families in Ontario regarding the funding of Discretionary (Henson) Trusts, acquiring government benefits today and providing a decent quality of life for our sons and daughters with disabilities in the future.
He has never charged a fee for his services so the information he shares is accessible to everyone no matter what their financial situation.
Those who have worked with Graeme have achieved the peace of mind of knowing that their son's or daughter's quality of life will continue to be enhanced for their entire lifetime.
Graeme's other interests have included serving on the Board of Directors of Community Living York South, and serving on various committees within that organization.
He is also a consultant to the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy (OFCP) and their Long Term Planning and Support Program where his current project includes the writing of a Trustee Manual for Trustees of Henson Trusts.
Also, as part of his work with the OFCP, he has authored a book entitled: "Removing the Mystery" An Estate Planning Guide for Families of People With Disabilities.
He has also authored a Trustee Reference Manual for Trustees of Henson Trusts. Both publications are available on their web site at www.ofcp.on.ca.
