I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that you can always come to for all of your financial needs. I’ll add to it as I learn more, but you’ll notice that in the future I will reference this page quite often. I recommend bookmarking it for your reference and convenience. Enjoy!

I have been using Questrade for 8 years now. What’s not to love? They have the lowest commissions 1 cent per share, minimum $4.95 / maximum $9.95. A wide range of software platforms for buying stocks, mutual funds, foreign currency and options. Plus the CIPF insured up to a million dollars (In case that million dollar thing worries you :).

I have been using Mint since it first came out. It’s FREE! It’s a great place to track all of your income and expenses in one place. If you are wanting a place to consolidate all of your accounts and check your wealth Mint.com is a great place to start.
U.S. only Resources
As a disclaimer, I don’t get access to these ones, but there are a ton of bloggers who swear by them so if you are in the U.S. I thought you would like to know. Seriously, I’m jealous you can use these. 😉

Digit is another gem of a product. You link your account to it and it monitors your spending. Once it knows your spending habits, it starts to take little amounts out and put it into a separate savings account. This is a great way to stash away extra cash.
Acorns is kind of like Digit but a little different. It rounds up your transactions to the nearest even dollar and puts that difference into a diversified portfolio for you. Again, as a SAVER, I want this service in Canada yesterday. It honestly can’t come soon enough.
