    Mint is a famous and much-loved application for a simple reason: it’s darn good. However for Canadians long wanting to use the website, a lack of support for Canadian banks and the country as a whole made using Mint an impossibility.

    No more. Mint has come to Canada in a big way, opening the door for everyone in the Great North to pile on in and track their personal finances. Mint had this to say on the matter:

    It’s official: Mint is now ready for Canada. You can see your financial accounts in one place, set budgets, and do more with your money — for free. We support all major Canadian banks and accounts, and find you personalized savings so you can spend less. And our award winning Mint app is available in the Canadian iPhone and Android app stores.

    Mint was acquired last year by Intuit for some $170 million dollars, bringing the startup new status among personal finance gurus around the world. Mint has been praised for its simple personal finance goal setting and financial reporting, allowing even the most backward individuals insight into their spending and how they can control it.
