    Knowledge Bureau experts to examine issue at workshops in Winnipeg,
    Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Edmonton

    WINNIPEG, Jan. 8 /CNW/ - The stock market meltdown of 2008 destroyed
billions of dollars in shareholder value - and reduced the net worth of
thousands of Canadians.
    Many are now struggling with debt.
    "The tax consequences of debt management will significantly influence the
financial future of many Canadians," says Alan Rowell, DFA, Tax Services
Specialist and a member of the faculty of The Knowledge Bureau, Canada's
leading educator in tax and financial services.
    Mr. Rowell will discuss everything that Canadian accountants, advisors
and wealth managers need to know about the tax consequences of personal and
business debt, highlighted in a compelling case study format.
    "Astute tax planning by accountants, working closely with their clients
and their clients' wealth managers, can help mitigate the losses of 2008,"
says Evelyn Jacks, Knowledge Bureau president, tax expert and author.
    Ms. Jacks will cover all the changes affecting the 2008 T1 in the
organization's annual Line by Line Update.
    It is essential financial information - especially in these volatile
economic times.
