The Canadian Financial Summit 2018 – Online and FREE!
Last year, I had the opportunity to participate in the first Canadian Financial Summit, and I was glad I did.
This year, this event proves to be even bigger and better!
The Canadian Financial Summit is 100% free – no catch!
What I like the most about this online summit is that it brings together over 25+ Canadian experts in various fields and you get all their knowledge for free. I’m a fan of this content too 🙂
Who’s part of this conference?
The bloggers (and friends of mine) behind Young and Thrifty have once again organized this event featuring 25+ personal finance experts across the country.
Some of these experts include:
- Jon Chevreau (author of Findependence day; former editor of MoneySense Magazine)
- Preet Banerjee (CBC’s The National Commentator)
- Ellen Roseman (Columnist at Toronto Star)
- Rob Carrick (Columnist at The Globe and Mail) and many more!
In addition to these mainstream personal finance gurus, a number of popular Canadian finance bloggers will be participating, including but not limited to:
- Tom Drake (Maple Money)
- Bary Choi (MoneyWeHave)
- Stephen Weyman (Credit Card Genius and HowToSaveMoney)
- Robb Engen (BoomerandEcho)
- My buddy over at Million Dollar Journey and many more!
The gents at Young and Thrifty were kind enough to ask me to participate again – and I’ll be speaking about a magical money milestone we recently passed and what’s ahead when it comes to our financial plans for an early retirement, including what’s changed, how we’re getting there and more.
You can view the entire speaker line up and all the dates folks are presenting here. Can you find me in the picture below? 🙂

I would not call Cannew an expert.
@Mike: I agree, just one with a fixed agenda which I believe in.
I’m sure there will lots of good advice but usually it’s less specific and deals in generalities. Not that they could do much else.as everyone’s situation is different and they would like to appeal to a cross section of listeners. For me I’ve picked my medicine and will stick to it through thick & thin.
I think your financial plan is VERY sound cannew and you’ve done very well because of it. You’re an expert in your own right in that regard.
The cynic in me may be shouting down my better angels but I have to wonder about this…
“Over 25 Canadian personal finance experts are ready to help you become your own advisor.”
Are ALL these people truly “experts”? And if so, what qualification standards are being applied?
Well, I’m no CFP (yet) or CFA or other professional designation but I do believe some of these folks a) know their stuff and b) can provide great information to the masses.
Does everyone need this advice? Nope, that’s all good. 😉
“I do believe some of these folks a) know their stuff and b) can provide great information to the masses.”
Ya, that’s not exactly the issue. If one is going to advertise as “personal finance experts” in this day and age one had better have some kind of accreditation. Just sayin’.
Fair comment Lloyd. Designations and certifications can make a big difference. No argument there. This blog remains a hobby and passion FWIW.
Lloyd: Designations probably apply more to Sales than Experts. People like Mark probably provide more help to those who read his posts than they would get from those with designations. My mentor, Tom Connolly has no designation but I feel he’s provided many with great personal advice.
I take note that so far, no one has provided an explanation of just what qualifications make all these people “personal finance experts”.
I think we can all agree that whilst these bloggers may provide information, to classify them as experts is a bit of a stretch. It does no one any service to advertise them as such. In fact it kinda ticks me off.
Lloyd: I think it was “expert in their field”, but I agree that there is no such thing as “A Personal Financial Expert”. That would imply they could resolve eveyone’s personal financial problems and there is no one solution or route.
As I said each could probably provide some sound advice like: Reduce one’s debt, don’t spend more than you earn, start saving early, don’t put all your eggs in one basket, etc, etc. Expert advice, not likely.
We consulted Jim Yih, Pension Consultant and Founder of RetireHappy way back. His advice was to diversify and look to the long term with an 8% total return by holding a wide selection of Mutuals. We followed his advice, to our regret, but at the time it made perfect sense.
That’s the problem, most financial advice makes sense, is probably fairly good advice and generally correct, over the long term. Unless one is willing to take charge of their own finances and learn they are probably better off with the Passive ETF route, provided they stick to the buy, hold, ignore, else they’ll be with the 90% losers in the market.
Guess I should add that today I’m happy if my Income grows by 8% over the previous year, so if the price follows in the long term, than Jim’s projection was not all bad. I look at Total Return as Yield + Dividend Growth, so he’s out as my yield is just over 6%, + 8% = 14%.
That’s wild dividend growth. I am only hoping for ~4.5% yield across my portfolio and about 3-4% capital gains long-term.
Mark: I’m using my Income Increase over the previous year, which is a result of div increases & div re-investments. That change is currently 8.76% and with 3 months to go I should be around 10%. Everything else is unimportant, including Total Return which I don’t really monitor.
