Donald Petrone, B.A Econ - Financial Advisor

With proper planning, you can become financially independent so that you can enjoy the lifestyle you've always dreamed about. Start planning now!

I value financial freedom to spend time with the ones I love most. One of my greatest pleasures comes from spending time with my family. I also believe it is necessary that youth develop a strong understanding of the fundamentals of financial literacy. Because of this, I volunteer time to teach the future generations about financial success.

With a Bachelors degree in Economics from McMaster University, I understand the importance of proper planning for an enriched life. Further, unexpected events can happen in an instant, so it is crucial that you incorporate a holistic approach to your plan.

Let me help you create a personalized financial plan that encompasses protection for your health and growth for your wealth. We will review it annually to evaluate and adjust your goals/strategies, If you own or run a small business, I can help protect your assets and key individuals.

Together, we can make sure the future is bright!

Wynne outlines $155-million ‘action plan,’ commits to 5,000 new long-term care beds |

Although the Liberals are planning to increase amount of long term care beds in Ontario, it's not enough. I speak with so many pre-retirees and retirees who think that they don't need to prepare themselves for deteriorating health or feel that the government will take care of them. "It noted 32,000 seniors across Ontario — 3,200 alone in Hamilton and Burlington — are already on a waiting list for long-term care; and the provincial seniors population expected to double to 4.6 million the next 25 years." I can’t stress how important it is to have this conversation with an advisor…I’m here to help. Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is pitching a seniors strategy ahead of next year’s provincial election that includes thousands of new long-term care beds and extra care for nursing home residents.

Bankrupt by cancer: It's not just a life-threatening disease ― but a financial disaster. Even in Canada
