I had a reader send in an email a few weeks ago looking for some specific financial planning advice. We actually chatted on the phone and we decided that perhaps she might want to consider working with a financial planner that works by the hour. As such, here are a few resources that one might refer to for help in finding a fee-only financial planner in Canada:
Duncan Hood from Canadian Business magazine has seven pages of fee-only financial planners listed in the article, Where to find a fee-only financial planner.
IAFP – The Institute of Advanced Financial Planners – administers the RFP designation (which is much more difficult to earn and maintain than a CFP designation) and they have a fantastic resource on their website that allows you to search for an RFP in your area based on various criteria.
DISCLAIMER: I do not personally vouch for any planner listed on either resource, do your own due diligence when selecting a financial advisor.
