we use Gifford-Rice CD broker for fixed income (second generation actually) and put it in whatever tax instrument that makes sense under their management.

just don't let them redirect you to commission generating products - they will push you very hard - I am sure they consider us deadbeats as we only use CDs which are very competitive and generate very low fees for the firm (they are a loss leader actually)
don't go over the 100k insurance limit at any one institution, unless it is a provincially registered cooperative which has unlimited protection (dont do it anyway)
they are showing 3.575% for five years today - pick the term length that fits your planning
I assume you are nailing down debt of any kind as the first priority, then maxing your rsps, then maxing that new thing they have
I believe in debt elimination before savings as you can never earn enough after tax to beat the straightforward gain of not paying interest charges.
If you need to finance a purchase or tuition down the road, take a loan then or have a line of credit on the house. This is assuming you have the discipline to not abuse it and actually work down debt as you go along.
I had a line of credit on the house and all spare cash went to paying that down, including directly depositing my paycheck against the line of credit.
