Before I start talking about tax stuff, I’d like to get some minor self-promotion out of the way: This week, for those of you who live in and around Montreal (or want to come visit!), you have the unique opportunity to see me on-stage in circa-1900 overalls walking an imaginary horse! That’s right….I’ll be making… Read More Theatre and Taxes…A Match Made in Heaven…kinda.
“Christmas in July”: it was a popular phrase in the summer of 2015. A federal election was nearly upon us and the old Conservative government had decided to increase our child benefits. The increase in the benefits was paid out on July 20, 2015 and was retroactive to January 2015 so those of us with… Read More Got Kids?…Then Your Gov’t Cheque is in the Mail…The Sequel!
So I’ve got good news and bad news. Since you can’t tell me which news you want first (because I wrote this at some point in your past…just think about it), I’m going to decide for you…and my decision is…the good news! Since my last blog post, I’ve become a Daddy for the 2nd time! Harry… Read More The Death of $7/Day Daycare in Quebec.
Hi! Welcome back to me! After a mostly silent summer, the approach of the autumn season seems to have awakened this Funny Accountant from his slumber. Truth be told, it’s been a busy summer…with work, our new house having been a constant work-in-progress, a preggers wife and a 2.6804-year-old getting used to her big girl bed, little time remains… Read More Daycare and taxes and audits, oh my!!
My wife and I traveled to saint-Jerome yesterday for a mini-vacation, and some aspects of the trip stuck in my mind more than others. Our contact with the locals was fairly limited: dinner at a local chain restaurant, chatting with the hotel owner, and a trip to the Metro grocery store for some snacks. But these… Read More Dear PQ, Your Services Are No Longer Required.
It’s tax season!….and election season! Oh what a fun time of year, so much to do, so many debates to watch, so many polls to analyze. I thought I’d drop my 2 cents into the fountain before it all comes to an end…and hopefully help someone make some money at the same time. So I’m… Read More Scream It From the Rooftops: Vote!

For the average Canadian, the decisions about where to invest extra cash can be overwhelming to say the least. So many acronyms…RRSP, RESP, TFSA, need I go on?? Many people rely on experts in select fields to help them make these decisions, while many self-educate and make the decisions themselves. Whichever category you fall into,… Read More RRSP…WXYZ!

As I began writing this 3rd installment of my month-long RRSP bloggage, my wise and all-seeing wife (blog plug for Adventuresofmamakujo.com!) pointed out that I made a very large assumption when I began writing these posts. I assumed that my readers actually knew what an RRSP was and the basics of how it works! The… Read More The RRSP: A Beginner’s Guide…the ABC’s of the RRSP!
