FI/RE (financial independence/retire early) sounds pretty brainy to me.

A few thoughts off the top of my head:

1) $15,000 isn't very much money -- you might want to reevaluate. If you're living on $30K now, would you be able to cut your expenses in half if you couldn't find work?

2) What is your plan for going from 3.5% to 7.5% in your RRSP/other investments? You'd better bump up that return, because right now you're barely keeping up with inflation.

3) What about marriage, kids, home ownership? Early retirement plans notwithstanding, life happens.

Looking forward to seeing more details,
Mo.
