What was your journey, and what led you to launch a personal finance website? What are some of the biggest financial frustrations you’ve seen Canadian newcomers experience? What happens after they get here? Building credit. Buying a home. Setting a budget. Saving for retirement. How is personal finance the same for newcomers - and how is it different? How do you make money now, to turn this into a money-making business? You have millions of website visitors each year - that's impressive. They can’t all be immigrants. Why do you think native born Canadians also visit Savvy Canadians? You’ve also authored several personal finance guides and eBooks. Many highly educated immigrants are coming in, business owners from other countries coming in, but yet they're starting all over again. They need to learn how we can create a financial legacy for our children, the next generation. If an immigrant is successful financially, the chances are that their descendants are going to also succeed. How do you see the financial needs of immigrants changing after they’ve lived in Canada 5, 10, 15 years and longer? Immigrants have taken advantage of those opportunities to grow businesses, establish themselves, become employers themselves. If you could share one piece of financial advice with immigrants before they arrive in Canada, what would that be? Developing a money mindset.

Gordon Vanderleek: Wills and Estate Lawyer and Disability Advocate | Episode 37 Calgary, Alberta lawyer Gordon Vanderleek is the Founder and Chief Strategist of VanderLeek Law (and Evelyn's wills and trusts guru!). His practice focuses on solving problems and educating in the areas of estate planning, estate administration and trust law. Gordon takes pride in being compassionate and empathetic, had making a difference in people's lives during high stress times of their lives. Ackah Law recently expanded our legal services to provide wills and estate planning for newcomers to Canada. From our experience, we see that many temporary and permanent immigrants don’t understand that if they are living in Canada and unexpectedly die, if they don't have a will, the laws in the province or territory you live in will determine how your estate is divided - not necessarily the laws of their home country.  Evelyn and Gordon discuss: Why estate planning is hard for many people - talking about what will happen to their assets - their things - after they are gone, and how to protect their loved ones; and why Gordion decided to practice this area of law. Why wills and estate planning is important to everyone, including immigrants. Life events and milestones that should trigger estate planning, beginning at age 18. How Canada and Alberta laws impact newcomers, and what happens when a person's wishes don't match their legal documents. How to make sure your wishes are carried out. The importance of establishing guardianship for your minor children. How Personal Directives and Power of Attorney plan for incapacitation or disabilities, which have become a more visible issue since Covid. Special trusteeships and adult guardianships that are available for adults with special needs, and how the Britney Spears conservatorship made people aware of the need to do advance planning. Are DIY wills and holographs enforceable? Estate planning for children with special needs: how to gift money and protect their financial future.
Break We're going to be taking a little break from the podcast. A recent cancer diagnosis in the family has me stretched for time, and frankly not in the right headspace for "entertaining." Hopefully it's a short break, but we'll see.  Thank you so much for all the kind words of support from over the years. It's been a real pleasure to get to know some of you and to hear how the podcast has influenced you in your thinking when it comes to immigrants.  Let's talk again soon under better circumstances.

Dr Enoch Omololu: Helping Newcomers Transition to Savvy New Canadians | Episode 36 November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada. Evelyn spoke to Enoch Omololu, DVM, MSc, whose passion is to help newcomers to Canada with their personal finances. Enoch is a veterinarian and the resident personal finance expert at Savvy New Canadians. He has a master’s degree in Finance and Investment Management from the University of Aberdeen Business School (Scotland) and has completed several courses and certificates in finance, including the Canadian Securities Course. He also has an MSc. in Agricultural Economics from the University of Manitoba and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Ibadan. Enoch has been helping others win with their personal finances and has been writing about money matters for over a decade. His writing has been featured or quoted in The Globe and Mail, Winnipeg Free Press, Wealthsimple, Financial Post, Toronto Star, Credit Canada, MSN Money, National Post, CIBC, and many other personal finance publications. Evelyn and Enoch cover a range of Canadian personal finance and immigration issues including: You’re a Doctor of Veterinary medicine. What was your journey, and what led you to launch a personal finance website? What are some of the biggest financial frustrations you’ve seen Canadian newcomers experience? What happens after they get here? Building credit. Buying a home. Setting a budget. Saving for retirement. How is personal finance the same for newcomers - and how is it different? How do you make money now, to turn this into a money-making business? You have millions of website visitors each year - that's impressive. They can’t all be immigrants. Why do you think native born Canadians also visit Savvy Canadians? You’ve also authored several personal finance guides and eBooks. Many highly educated immigrants are coming in, business owners from other countries coming in, but yet they're starting all over again. They need to learn how we can create a financial legacy for our children, the next generation. If an immigrant is successful financially, the chances are that their descendants are going to also succeed. How do you see the financial needs of immigrants changing after they’ve lived in Canada 5, 10, 15 years and longer? Immigrants have taken advantage of those opportunities to grow businesses, establish themselves, become employers themselves. If you could share one piece of financial advice with immigrants before they arrive in Canada, what would that be? Developing a money mindset.
