Kids Heading Off to School? What Changes?
By Jason Watt, CD, CLU

It’s September, and some of your clients might be sending the kids away to post-secondary school for the first time. This can be an exciting time. I know that Canadians don’t do this as much as our neighbours to the south, but it still happens. Even if the kids aren’t headed off to school, those who have recently completed school might be getting ready to leave home – maybe even for good in some cases!

In this month’s newsletter article, I want to explore some of the financial planning concerns as the kids head out the door. I am going to stay away from tax topics, such as tuition tax credits., which is one of my favourite websites, has an excellent writeup on the tuition tax credit.
