With the national average home price up a record 18.5% in August 2020 compared to the same time last year, more Canadians than ever have a significant portion of their wealth tied up in their homes.
Who are these “house rich” homeowners? They range widely—from retirees on a fixed income, to baby boomers who’d like to help their adult kids financially, to young parents struggling to save due to the high cost of living and childcare.
Many are now looking at ways to access the  equity in their homes. These include refinancing their traditional mortgage, obtaining a home equity line of credit (HELOC) or getting a reverse mortgage. But how can you determine which option is best for you?

A look at the new Air Canada Aeroplan small business co-brand credit cards  Next up in our coverage of the new Air Canada Aeroplan program is our look at the small business co-brand credits for the program. We’ll cover all the cards here in one post rather than an individual post for each card like we did for the consumer cards. There are two levels of business cards that are offered for the Aeroplan program. American Express is the issuer of the higher end business card while TD and CIBC are offering what I would consider as mid-level cards as they don’t provide as much as the American Express card but aren’t entry level cards either.Remember you’ll be able to find this article and all of our other articles and features on the following page:The New Air Canada Aeroplan Program All the resources you needWe’ll start off by looking the premium card for Aeroplan’s suite of business cards the American Express Business Reserve card: American Express Business Reserve CardThe Welcome BonusThe limited time welcome bonus matches the consumer version of this card with an offer of up to 65,000 Aeroplan points and a $100 statement credit…
