Canadians will see their wallets lightened in 2013 by increases to federal EI (employment insurance) and CPP (Canada pension plan) deductions. Various provinces have increased their income tax rates, and we can also expect to see increases in the general cost of living. Maybe this is a good time for Canadians to re-evaluate their finances?

There has been quite a bit of talk about the U.S. fiscal cliff, set to take affect in January of 2013. But what exactly is this "fiscal cliff", and what sort of effects will it have on Canada, and the Canadian economy in particular?

Why is the Canadian life insurance and financial sector in as good a shape as the American financial industry is in bad shape? There are two primary reasons for this: tight government regulations and prudent investing on the part of Canadian life insurance companies!

Sir John A Macdonald, the first Canadian Prime Minister, is know for many things like the Great Canadian Railway, Confederation and a National Policy. But did you know he was also Manulife's first president?

The European Debt Crisis has been much publicized and discussed. But what are the possible affects for Canadians? The economy of Canada is much better off compared to many countries, but is it strong enough to withstand the effects of the EU debt predicament?

A life insurance plan should be updated when any major life changes occur. How much coverage is required is affected by things such as; selling or purchasing a property; changes to credit card debt; the birth of children; and changes to employment status, just to name a few. Calculating how much coverage is required to protect your loved ones is quick and easy to do using our life insurance calculator!

Many Canadian small businesses rely heavily on one person. This can be a man or woman who is instrumental to the success of the business and would be difficult to replace, at least for the short-term. Examples of key people are managers, directors, and in some cases IT people that are responsible for maintaining and running legacy systems.

The amount of average Canadian household debt has been in the news many times the past couple of months. In fact, on June 21 of this year the Canadian Finance Minister, Jim Flaherty, announced that Ottawa will be tightening mortgage restrictions in order to avert what he called a "household debt crisis". (As a result the Canadian government will reduce the maximum amortization period for a government insured mortgage from 35 years to 25 years.)

Buying a home is a one of the biggest financial commitments people make during their lifetime. This is especially true these days, with real estate prices being so high compared to our parent’s generation. Protecting your financial investment in a new home is very important. What would happen if you (as the mortgage holder) were to pass away due to an accident or a fatal disease? Will your home be fully paid off, leaving your spouse and/or children with an inheritance?

While Canadians differ in their opinion of Quebec protesters, one good point has been raised: should Canadian post-secondary (university) education be affordable to all Canadians?
