A few words about us

Spencer Experts was founded in 2009 by Phyllis Spencer who brought over 15 years of employment related work experience to the business. Heather Spencer Grim partnered with Phyllis soon after and they have been leading their team towards success every day since.

Spencer Experts provides vocational and employment related services to the Legal and Insurance industries. We purposely position ourselves as working for both Personal Injury Lawyers as well as Insurance Defence Legal Teams providing vocational expertise that will help to determine appropriate settlement terms.

Insurance companies regularly contract Spencer Experts to provide various employment counselling with individual and group clients who are able to return to work, such as; Case Management, Job Search Training, Vocational Testing, Career Exploration and more.

We are based in Ontario and are able to offer services province wide and beyond to other provinces in Canada. Our vocational experts have also worked in the United States on several legal files.
