The federal budget has been a blessing for some. It is no doubt politically motivated, just like many things our politicians do. So nothing new there.
The highlights are:
-TFSA contributions from $5500 to $10000 (good news for people conscious of their financial future and understand the concept money makes money and it is a bonus the profit is sheltered from the tax man)
--Balanced budget with a tiny surplus (1.4 billion)
CMHC) recently announced that it has increased the insurance premium meaning 5% down the premium goes from 3.15% of the total amount borrowed to 3.6%. effective June 1, 2015. So no brainier, hurry up if you want to save on insurance. (my advice; do not rush to save a little, might lose a lot on the long run)
