Ellen Roseman has been sticking up for Canadians as an advocate for consumer rights for the past 35 years.
If you’re interested in Canadian personal finance, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve already read something written by Ellen Roseman.
Ellen’s been a personal finance and consumer advocacy columnist at the Toronto Star for over 20 years and though she officially retired from the Star in 2015, Ellen agreed to stay on in a freelance capacity to write a weekly column, featuring consumer issues she believes will have the most impact for Canadians.
Ellen has written 8 books, including Money 101, Money 201 and her latest book Fight Back: 81 ways to help you save money and protect yourself from corporate trickery.
Ellen also teaches investing and personal finance courses at the University of Toronto Continuing Studies and currently sits on the board as co-chair of the Canadian Foundation for Advancement of Investor Rights, which we talk more about in the episode.
Ellen joined me in the studio in Hamilton to tell her personal finance story.
