Holidays - Finances

Managing day to day finances properly takes time, thought, and planning. Many Canadians carry a certain amount of debt as part of their overall financial picture. But with proper financial planning, you’ll be able to determine how much money you’ll need for monthly expenditures, tax payments, and future savings, and be able to manage debt effectively. Many individuals and families enjoy taking holidays, and budgeting for this within your overall financial picture can ensure a fun and enjoyable holiday ahead. Financial experts have differing views on how much money you should keep in savings, how and where to invest your money, and how best to manage your monthly and yearly costs. Do you have questions about your current financial situation and debt-load? Would you like guidance or information from a financial expert for yourself, a friend or loved one? Are you looking for resources within your community to help you manage your overall financial picture? Kinjunxion is here to help with sources of support and information.
