Welcome back and Happy New Year!
Hopefully you've had a chance to enjoy some turkey, sweets, and time spent with family and friends over the Christmas break. Since the non-retired folks are back to work and setting new goals for the coming year... I thought why not challenge all of you to make a TFSA investment one of your goals for the year. At the very least, please encourage your children to take advantage of a TFSA.
For many early 20-somethings that are freshly graduated and are now facing credit card and loan bills, the last thing on their mind is investments. Your new job can just about cover rent and groceries but the limitless pocket money of your youth is now a distant memory. Granted, saving for retirement may be a far fetched idea with the mountain of immediate payments piling up; however this does not mean that young Canadians should ditch investing entirely!
