MONTREAL, Jan. 11, 2013, 2013 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- PEAK Financial Group is continuing to expand, strengthening its insurance of persons sector in Western Canada.

Concluding this transaction during its 20(th )anniversary year, PEAK is expanding its well-established network of more than 1,300 independent financial Advisors and registered professionals in Canada and is diversifying its revenues in a geographic sector that offers considerable opportunities.
