Transparency & Disclosure

Thank you to Tanya Hester for this great idea! 

My transparency page is all about the blog, and the things you should know. 

This blog is not a business. I write because I enjoy writing, and want to give a different FIRE perspective to other Canadians. It seems we are under-represented, therefore I thought that, by sharing my journey, we could build a community of those striving (or have achieved) the same thing. 

There are some affiliate links included in this site. This means that I have included a link to a product or service that I recommend, and by using that link and/or making a purchase, I may receive a small commission for your transaction.

All the funds that are collected from any affiliated links or ads are to be applied to the costs of running this blog. It does cost a fair bit to host an active blog. In the event that the blog brings in more than the cost of hosting and having the blog, I will be donating a percentage of the profits to charities and to those in need. (While it’s very forward thinking to imagine I will get to that point, it still excites me to think that I could help others!)

As the owner of, I strive to provide you with information and resources that are relevant and interesting. I make no representation as to the validity of the information, as all is shared within my perspective, and what is available to the public consumer. I am not an official “expert” nor am I representing any one official stance. It is recommended to always validate information independently. 

Information provided on this site is for informational and entertainment purposes only. I am not a financial advisor, nor an attorney or a lawyer; I am not providing any services than for those said purposes, nor do any of the posts on this site contemplate or create a professional relationship of proffered advice. I will not be held responsible for any errors or omissions stated in this site, nor any losses, injuries or damages incurred by or on behalf of any entity, consumer, shareholders, heirs or otherwise. 

No part of this site may be reproduced, published or reprinted without my explicit written consent. 


I have made available a resource list(s) with links to service providers and products throughout the site. The sole purpose of these links is to give you direct access to the products and services that I have chosen to discuss. While some links or products may provide compensation by way of an affiliate relationship, only those links and products that I find to be of high quality and are valuable to my readers will be offered. Further, compensation made from any affiliate incomes is to provide for the maintenance and continuance of this site as my first and foremost priority, so that I may continue to provide this site.  To the best of my knowledge and belief, any affiliate compensation will not affect the consumer’s relationship with the provider, and no expense for the affiliate relationship will be passed on to the consumer.
