TD targets young Canadians with online budgeting tools

In a recent TD Poll, which compared investment attitudes of Gen X (born between 1965 and 1976) and Gen Y (born after 1980), Gen Xers said saving more each month, paying off debt, and opening an RSP are the top financial decisions they would make differently if they were 25 again.

In a recent TD Poll, which compared investment attitudes of Gen X (born between 1965 and 1976) and Gen Y (born after 1980), Gen Xers said saving more each month, paying off debt, and opening an RSP are the top financial decisions they would make differently if they were 25 again. To help respond to this need, TD recently launched www.tdgetsaving.com for younger people who are starting to earn a paycheque. Video tutorials and savings calculators offer strategies to help reach both short and long-term savings goals and show in dollar terms the impact of starting to save early.

The website also includes TFSA and RSP calculators that show how even small savings, when invested properly, can add up over time and provide substantial tax savings.
