Importance of an Emergency Fund

Pandemic Lessons For The Young: Start an Emergency Fund

It is heartening to read some good news lately. There has been far too much news of the opposite variety during the COVID-19 pandemic, to understate the obvious. But talks of continuing to ‘flatten the curve,’ advancements in science, and gradually re-opening businesses are starting to creep into the daily news—and not a moment too soon.
One of the key financial advice takeaways I have from all this turmoil is the overwhelming need to have an emergency fund.

Market Commentary: ‘Stay Patient’

A message from Cliff Broetz, Leader of Strategic Development, on behalf of the Precision Wealth Management Team.

5 Reasons to Open an RRSP

A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is an account, registered with the federal government, that you use to save for retirement. There are a number of benefits to saving in an RRSP.
1. Contributions are tax deductible
You claim your RRSP contribution as a deduction on your tax return. And if your income is lower in a year, you can carry forward the deduction for your contribution to a future year when your income may be higher. That way, your tax savings are greater when you’re in […]
