Life and Mortgage
Buy insurance from a licensed advisor.Know that the coverage you have will pay when the unexpected happens.
As Erica Johnson reports, bank staff selling mortgage insurance are unlicensed and rarely trained to explain the details and legalities of those insurance products. The result is people pay premiums and think they are covered, only to realize later that they are not. In Alberta, only licensed advisors can sell insurance, banks are prevented from selling insurance.

THE FASTEST WAY TO BE MORTGAGE-FREE
Instead of making extra payments, consider switching to a mortgage that pays off the principal faster without costing you anything more. All-in-one mortgages combine a line-of credit mortgage with a chequing account to reduce your spending habits. You deposit your pay into the all-in-one account and pay bills as you normally would. While you're not using your money, it's used to reduce your daily loan balance. Over the life of the loan, this save tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in interest.
