Safeguard your family's financial future

Looking after your family's financial health means sticking to a budget and saving for special occasions—but also planning for emergencies and thinking about the future.

Learning to save

Raising kids isn't cheap! Set yourself up to succeed: contribute to an RRSP (and your spouse's!) to reduce your income tax, or save for your kids' education with an RESP to grow your savings by 20% to 40% thanks to government subsidies. For your short-term plans, contribute to a TFSA and earn tax-free interest.
