Community is everything.

Million Dollar began back in 2006, and boasts nearly 50,000 comments. Benefit from their collective wisdom and read what our community has to say about Canadian finance in 2024.

We’ve got a ton of information here , and after helping thousands of Canadians get started over the years, I know the information overload can be a bit intimidating.

Every journey begins with just a small step! If you are unsure where to start, check out these index investing strategies or Canadian dividends guide, two of my most useful money making methods over the years. Or read my net worth updates to see  exactly what I did to reach the million dollar mark.
