The Military Money Corner


  • Here you’ll find posts and resources focused on personal finance for Canadian military (CAF) members.
  • I serve as an Air Force Officer. I’m on the path to Financial Independence through frugal living and investing. 


  • No one taught me how the pension works, how to read pay stubs, or how military service affects the way you use the RRSP or TFSA. 
  • In my first posting I saw students struggle financially. Later, I found out that this is normal – most Canadian’s live paycheck to paycheck.
