Sue for it: This one is big in the United States, where more than three-quarters of the world's lawyers practice and upwards of 94 percent of the world's lawsuits are filed. But Canadians are becoming more litigious too. While Canadians have usually left it to the Americans to sue each other for spilling coffee in their laps or abandoning the wheel of an RV on cruise control, some Canadians feel that, rather than earn, save, and invest, a better strategy is find 'em. sue 'em, and sock it to 'em. In any case, it's not a real system that can be counted on to build wealth.


Most people use this rrsp withdrawal to add to any down payment they have already amassed to put down against the purchase price of their home, to either lower the amount of mortgage they will require, or increase the amount of the mortgage they can carry.

Lastly, be aware of options that are available for the Canadian real-estate market. The Ontario Home Ownership Savings Plan (OHOSP) gives substantial tax breaks for qualified parties. The Home Buyer's Plan (HBP), allows you to withdraw from your rrsps plan. Articles discussing those plans are required reading for the house-shopper.

Generation X and Y-ers: for all those younger generations who are not quite ready to settle down yet, you can always spend your tfsa money on something you really want. A new car? A trip to Europe? A sound system that you can hear across the nation? Or... you can buckle down and save for a down payment on a house, a car, or for retirement with this tax shelter for growth.

The sixth step to get rich is to invest in real estate. The majority of millionaires made their money through investing this way. There are many books available to help you learn more about investing in income properties or flipping houses for profit. Owning your own home is a priority renting will not help you build your wealth.

Obviously group health care is going to be less expensive than individual health care. If your place of employment doesn't have group health insurance then try asking around at any organizations, groups or associations investment planning that you belong to. Many are now offering their members low-cost group health.
