RDSPs are a great savings choice for Canadians with autsim or other disabilities

I’m a father of child who has autism, and my wife and I have often wondered about his future. How will he be as an adult? What will he do? Where will he live? Will he be able to support himself?

I’m sure these questions are asked by all parents, but particularly parents of children with special needs.

Late last year, I found information on what appears to be a little known federal government-sponsored plan that has eased some of our concerns for our son’s financial well-being. The plan is called the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP). Continue reading

Autism Speaks fundraiser walk in Montreal

Just a quick note to say that I’ll be participating in the Walk Now for Autism Speaks fundraising walk on June 19, Father’s Day, in Montreal. I’ll be walking for my son, Matthew, who has autism, and for all other children like him. Please consider making a donation to this worthy cause.

Welcome to the MCG Media blog – the personal blog of MCG Media owner and founder Mike McGrath. What will you find here? My intention is to post some thoughts and articles on things that are of interest to me.

Posts in the Communications category will cover various topics related to business communications over the Web, including traditional websites as well as social media. Sports category posts will feature some content on my favourite competitive sports, hockey and motor racing. I will also post in the Health category, touching on things I think lead to better health and well-being. In particular, I intend to post about my family’s experience with changing our diet. I’ll also post a few thoughts on what it’s like to raise a child with autism and will be writing about my experience with Tony Robbins’ Ultimate Edge personal improvement program.

Finally, I’m posting a page called Defining Moments. A few years ago, it was my intention to write a book called Defining Moments. That hasn’t happened yet, but I thought I’d post what I’ve written so far to get some feedback.

I hope you enjoy your visit!
