The earlier you start saving for retirement the better, as it allows you to take advantage of compound interest. The later you start the more challenging it becomes to reach your retirement goals.
Children's College Planning
An RESP is a great way to save for a child or grandchild's post- secondary education. Investments in an RESP grow on a tax-deffered basis. Take advantage of the college education savings grant and the Federal Government will match 20% of the amount you contribute to the RESP, up to a maximum of $500 per year. The lifetime maximum CESG you can receive is $7,200 per child. The lifetime RESP contribution limit is $50,000.
Life insurance is a protection against the loss of income that would result if the insured passed away. The named beneficiary receives the proceeds tax free and is thereby safeguarded from the financial impact of the death of the insured.
Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging, during a person's life, for the successful transfer of their estate. Estate planning can be used to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of probate and to maximize the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses.
