    When Mehmet Gulec looks back on the days and weeks following his family’s arrival in Canada from Turkey in December 2013, he says he’s still amazed by everything the foursome overcame in fleeing their homeland.

  • TFSA, RRSP and RRIF rule changes miss the mark

    Now if it would just address the real flaws in Canada’s retirement system. Last week’s federal budget showered goodies on the grey-haired set, ranging from more time for seniors to tap their registered retirement income funds (RRIFs) to vastly expanded limits on contributions to tax-free savings accounts (TFSAs). Neither move addresses what is arguably the most important goal of the retirement system – ensuring all Canadians over 65 enjoy a decent standard of living. Canada has been a world leader in this regard and our old-age poverty rate remains among the 10 lowest in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.
