This week, I’d like to highlight a few carnivals of Canadian content that have started recently:
- The Canadian Personal Finance & Investing Carnival just ran it’s 5th edition and is chock full of top Canadian personal finance and investing articles. Go check it out.
- Rachelle from Land Lord Rescue is starting a Canadian Real Estate Carnaval. This should be pretty interesting – it runs every two weeks starting on September 30.
- Tom from Canadian Finance Blog has also started a carnival which features Canadian personal finance content. Here is the 1st edition.
