  • New immigrants to Canada face unexpected costs

  • Why the US won't have OPEC to kick around in 2016

  • 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.
