Although I consider myself to be reasonably intelligent, I had a hard time wrapping my head around financial matters. This despite an MBA with a concentration in Marketing AND Finance! This was not a problem until my father passed away and I was charged with helping my retired Mom manage her finances. This is a HUGE responsibility as I am entrusted with protecting her assets and I guess the "assets to be inherited by the kids"  to some degree while trying to maximize ROI. Add to that the various tax rules around RRSPs, RIFs, annuities and the like and you can see why I would have a hard time understanding all this. In addition to relying on a financial advisor, I felt that it would be in everyone's best interest to understand what's out there for when we retire. So....I give you Canadian Retirement Resources. A blog about Canadian Retirement Resources that will include comprehensive links, articles, tips, guides, calculators and contacts to help seniors and boomers alike plan their retirement. If I can take some stress off of you and even help you keep a bit of cabbage in your jeans, I'm happy. Do me a favour and send along your tips - I'll give you credit for them of course and we'll all be better off as a result! Thanks for investing the time to read this!
