released a commissioned report today that concludes that there must be more opportunities for Canadians to participate in pension plans. And the most effective way to encourage higher participation by Canadians is fostering employer-sponsored defined contribution (DC) pension plans. "We are in the middle of a perfect storm.

Have funds, will travel - Winnipeg Free Press
Sometimes, even the best-laid plans deserve a little credit. Bill and Tana Karras had been saving for 21/2 years for the family summer holiday of a lifetime. "We called it our 'Freedom 3' plan," says Bill Karras, a 44-year-old, married father of three children, ages 12 to 17.

They figured she would work one full year as a teacher and that would help build up just enough savings for a three-week trip for the family to Europe last summer.

Don't liken us to telemarketers: Advisors
The advisor community welcomes the new CRCT regulation that binds them by the same rules as other phone solicitors. Apart from a few halfhearted objections to being treated as telemarketers, most said the ruling would only impact new industry recruits, and that it would likely not deter "boiler room" operators. A recent release from the CRTC said that "unsolicited telecommunications made by investment or financial advisors and insurance agents or brokers to existing clients to sell or promote their respective products or services constitute telemarketing telecommunications under the Rules." That's just ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
