Your client, Laura, a 70-year-old retired high school teacher, is an active online investor. She holds foreign tech stocks, Canadian and foreign mining stocks, some hedge funds, and 30 different GIC’s. Laura says, “I don’t understand all the tax stuff. I follow a few YouTube gurus who say they’ve made a ton of money, and I can, too. Can you help me? Should I still be maxing out my RRSP’s? What about TFSA’s?”

A few comments about the previous year’s workshops:
“Very useful information presented in a thoughtful and interesting way. Thank you!"
“I was impressed with the way he held everyone's attention and kept us engaged - that says a lot when you're talking about 3 hours of tax at a time!"
“Enjoyed the session very much and appreciated the practical nature of the topic. I have taken tax sessions from other sources before, and it is often too theoretical, harder to grasp the concept."
“This was an incredible session. Very informative and engaging. Allan tested us with tax scenarios that were challenging and really made us think."
The workshop is a 6-hour workshop that is presented and split over two 3-hour sessions.
