Financial Skills for the Real World: Introduction to Investing

 Introduction to Investing

Do TFSAs, RRSPs, GICs, and ETFs sound like a foreign language? Do you equate investing in the stock market to a game of chance? Join us for this insightful webinar brought to you by the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada and learn how better managing your finances today can lead to a more prosperous future.

Note: If you are new to investing, it is highly recommended that you attend this webinar before the more advanced webinars on invested in this series since it reviews most of the basic terminology.

Learning Outcomes:

• Identify key features of TFSAs and RRSPs.
