Is there a Mint.com substitute for Canada?
Does something like this exist in Canada yet?

Maybe I'm getting old or paranoid but are there any security concerns with putting all your financial/private information aggregated on some 3rd party website?smcandc wrote: ↑Yodlee supports a lot of Canadian financial institutions (Big 5, PCF, ING), investments companies, credit cards (although not MBNA sadly), and reward plans (Aeroplan, Air Miles). Mint is basically putting a pretty face on top of a Yodlee back end, so you get a lot of the same features. It's a pretty slick account aggregator.

I guess it all depends how much you trust the 3rd party website.

Thanks, I was able to add my chequing/savings account from TD but not from CIBC or my Visas from TD. Looks interesting once I have it working.smcandc wrote: ↑Yodlee supports a lot of Canadian financial institutions (Big 5, PCF, ING), investments companies, credit cards (although not MBNA sadly), and reward plans (Aeroplan, Air Miles).

That's the thing, regardless of their stated privacy policies I wouldn't trust them at all. I can say one thing for sure, there's no way in hell I'd give them my username/password to access my banking sites to automatically download the information. That's just asking for abuse.
For example, Yodlee may share your personal information with a nonaffiliated third party to offer you a new service on the Yodlee MoneyCenter web site that is provided jointly by Yodlee and an unaffiliated company. Yodlee reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on Yodlee

I agree. Some things just don't belong in the cloud. I use a spreadsheet to keep track of my finances and it is working quite well.

I don't know about that. Personally I'd like a service like this. But to get me to use it, first the banks have to set up some controllable public web service API for online banking that would let you customize which accounts each consuming app can access, and how much access they get, and the ability to change or remove access for an app at any time. (Think similar to third party Facebook applications, but with much more strict access controls.)

Is there a Canadian version? That link goes to the US only version I think. At least, it asks for a Zip code and complains when I enter a Postal Code.

Does it download your account info and transaction history for you or do you have to export/import the data (or worse, type it in) ?shuuy wrote: ↑I don't like buying software, but the $40 I spent on Microsoft Money Canada was well worth it.
I've been using it for 3.5 years and I can tell you precisely at this moment my portfoilo YTD, yearly capital gains, net worth, and how much over budget I am based on my purchases of booze. All of which is a ~5 hour / month investment to keep accounts up-to-date.
