Our wiki, finiki, the Canadian financial Wiki, is a knowledge base of financial subjects written from a Canadian point of view.

finiki is a collaborative work that is primarily based on knowledge built up in the discussion forum, and is presented in an easy-to-navigate and searchable format.

If you are a new investor looking for help and guidance, you might want to begin with Getting started or give finiki's search a try. The navigation menu (above) has links to the major finiki categories, or try finiki's Help:Navigation.

In case you are wondering, the name finiki is a play on financial + wiki.


The discussion forum is where FWF members talk about Canadian financial matters. Individual investors can pose questions about financial matters of all kinds, help answer others' questions, and provide information that might be of interest to do-it-yourself investors. We hope this will help you to invest on your own, or at least to have more informed conversations with financial advisers.

We encourage newcomers who may have little knowledge of finance. There are no stupid questions. We were all beginners once.

We are not registered financial advisers or planners but we do have a lot of collective wisdom to share. Ultimately, many financial questions do not have a right or wrong answer, but rather a range of options. It is up to you to weigh the pros and cons in light of your specific situation.

You can visit the forum as a guest, i.e. without registering: or you can register, it is free. Only registered members can post new messages or have access to the non-financial sections. The forum is moderated and we ask members to be courteous and constructive.
