Quick Tip #22 – Value of Advice


Children are expensive – a new bike, the latest gadgets, a backpacking vacation and their future education – it all adds up. One of the most important parts is planning ahead, and, that starts with the right professional advice. That’s why 24 per cent of households with people under the age of 45 with an advisor had RESPs, compared to just 14 per cent of households without an advisor. Now that’s smart advice.

Quote of the Day – 12/11/2016


For ever so long, each year millions of children painfully died on our planet. Second, and unlike just a century ago, now most of the horror can be readily prevented. But, third, a great deal of what’s so preventable isn’t prevented. Finally, for years to come, this sad situation will continue. So, it may be usefully fair to say that, in our era, at least, this is a perennially rotten world. – Peter Unger; Living High and Letting Die
