“Canadians are starting to recognize the impact taxes can have on a portfolio,” Mr. Cestnick writes. “I’m here to tell you that focusing on after-tax returns is so important when investing outside an RRSP or RRIF that it could mean the difference between having plenty in retirement, and moving in with the kids or performing on a street corner to make ends meet (and unless you’re Bono, performing on a street corner is not likely to get you far).”
