Jonathan Chevreau is a Canadian journalist and author. He got his start as a technology writer for The Globe and Mail in the early 1980s, where he was one of the few observers of the scene who believed that mobile (cell) telephones could someday replace landline phones; he made the even more prescient prediction that someday cell phones would make it possible for a person to keep the same phone number for life.[1]

In the mid-1990s, shortly before its merger with the National Post, Chevreau joined the staff of the Financial Post as a finance writer, where he worked as a personal finance columnist until 2012. That year he left the Post to join MoneySense.

Chevreau has written several books dealing with both personal finance and the macrofinancial world.[2] In 2008, he published his first work on fiction, Findependence Day,[3] which is ostensibly a novel but largely serves as a vehicle for advising young people how to plan for an early retirement.
