Quicken 2017 Canadian version

According to the quicken.ca website, starting with QUicken 2017, the canadian version will ONLY be available by ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION and, get this, for $89.99 for an effing year... I paid less than $100 CDN for Quicken 2014 which gave me 3 years of stock price downloads. I talked to an online agent and, more or less, was told to suck it up, that was the way it was going to be. POintless to buy the U.S. version as the tax codes are so different and, once using the U.S. version, that data is not importable, supposedly, to the Canadian version if one has a change of heart.

OR, I could simply keep using my Quicken 2014 and just manually update all 58 stock prices, now and then. ***k you, Quicken!

This is friggin unbelievable. I've been using Quicken for 20+ years and I can't believe they have devolved to such a low standard. And I am a Mac us er - and their Mac version is useless - I have to run it in a virtual envir onment ... and pay for Windows - for the only Windows application I run.
I just don't know how this business model can survive in Canada - oh yes I do ... it's because we keep on paying for it as there is no other game in t own.

I am also a Quicken's user for the last 24- 25 years. I was looking to buy Quicken home and busines 2017 to upgrade from my 2014 version as this later one will not support quotes downloading by the end of May 2017. When I realized that the 2017 version has an annual fee of $89.99 and would be only an old database if the fees are not renewed, I checked first for t he 2016 version... which is no longer available. I, then, decided to look at alternatives. I found AceMoney. I downloaded the 30 day trial version. I imported some QIF files and entered manually some other datas. I find it, for myself, a very good alternative at a fraction of the cost ($ 39.99). It takes into account many currencies, give access to most of the Canadian banks and quotes updating is fast and reliable. I definitely will get rid of Quicken (will keep my 2014 version as my histo rical database). I would have kept Quicken if the annual fees would have been lower. It is r eally not a software that commands such a high annual fee for what it offe rs (at least, for my needs).

Sounds like a plan. Hopefully it will work in Canada, with Canadian investments, etc..

If it is actually only the lack of support for downloading quotes that is a t issue, you may want to consider using a program like NetStock:

I've been using Quicken for about 20 years and have been playing with GnuCa sh and KMyMoney as potential replacements for Quicken. My primary motivati on for evaluating Quicken alternatives is that Quicken Inc. may not survive . I'm also not enamored by Quicken Inc.'s one year subscription model (for ced upgrade risk or your data is read-only).

NetStock is not a Quicken alternative. The program may be used to replace or supplement Quicken quote fetching functionality.
I suggest adding KMyMoney

Hi, this is very helpful. I?m just wondering if you are still happy with AceMoney and is it working well for Canadian Banks and TSX stocks? A re you using AceStock and does it integrate with AceMoney? Not happy with Quicken going to subscription after 20+ years using it. I didn?t ne ed all the functions I had to pay for just to get online banking and invest ment updates. Thanks so much ...
