Today’s guest post by Steve Kiziak. Life and health insurance advisor.
We are extremely fortunate as Canadians to have universal health care through the Canadian Health Act. Some of us also have additional health coverage and protection of income through a group insurance plan through our employer or unions. But as more Canadians are becoming self-employed and as our government seems to cover fewer services due to rising health care costs, we need to be more self-reliant and establish our OWN financial safety net.
Here are some the different ways we can protect our financial security.
It’s funny how some people end up in the film industry. Take my friend Steve for example. One minute he was minding his own business walking down a Vancouver street, and the next minute he was tackled by the producers of The X-Files and told he looks like David Duchovny. They hired him as David’s photo-double and soon he was living in Hollywood, making the big bucks.
Today Steve lives back in Vancouver and works as a Life and Health Insurance Advisor.

I sure wish I had been investing in assets instead of blowing all my X-Files money on that top of the line Mustang Cobra with the huge monthly finance payment. Maybe I should have bought Ford shares instead of the Ford!! Oh well it’s never too late to start good investing habits.
What I’d like to talk about today is not how to accumulate wealth, but how to protect it. So on that note let’s start with your biggest asset, your home.
