Saving for retirement may not be number one on your list of 2012 intentions, however it’s important to start saving as early in the year – and your lifetime – as you can.

Canadians who haven’t yet set up their retirement savings can help secure their financial future by making this the year to begin saving in earnest. Saving money isn’t about giving up what you enjoy when you are young; it’s about planning wisely so you can afford the lifestyle you want in the future.
