Connect your investments to your real-life goals

Have you heard about goals-based investing? It puts you in control by focusing on how your investments can help you reach your goals.

Sure, this sounds like a great approach to investing, and you might even be thinking, “Don’t I already invest to help fund my goals and dreams?”

But the real question is, how does this work? How do you connect your account balance with your real-life activities and goals? For example—how do you see if the money you’re putting away today will be enough for your kids’ education, or your retirement?

This is where Constellation Managed Portfolios comes in.

Mississauga Gathers Dignitaries to Mark 90 Years of Canada-Japan Diplomatic Relations

 The City of Mississauga hosted a reception at the Mississauga Civic Centre last week to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of Canada-Japan diplomatic relations.

The reception, hosted by Mayor Bonnie Crombie and the City’s Economic Development Office, was attended by Ms. Takako Ito, Consul General of Japan in Toronto, Members of City Council, as well as members of Mississauga’s Japanese business community.

“Mississauga shares a special, long-standing relationship with Japan that is deeply rooted in our shared values and strong economic ties. That’s why Mississauga is honoured to be hosting a reception to acknowledge 90 years of diplomatic relations between our two countries,” said Bonnie Crombie, Mayor of Mississauga.

Mississauga is home to nearly 100 globally-respected, successful and innovative Japanese companies. This number represents almost half of all Japanese companies located in Ontario and more companies than any other city within Canada. Some recent additions to the list of Japanese companies in Mississauga are Eisai Limited, MHI Canada Aerospace, KinderKids, IKO Thompson Bearings Canada and Tohmei Industries.

The City’s Economic Development Office works closely with the Japanese business community to support their growth in Canada. Japanese companies provide a major economic boost to Mississauga in the life sciences, aerospace, information and communications technology, logistics and transportation, and various advanced manufacturing sectors. In three years, Japan has moved from the third to the second highest source of foreign direct investment to Mississauga, after the United States.
