Course description

This course is about identifying your needs and wants. Knowing the difference between needs and wants is the first step toward creating a spending plan that will work for your life.

This course is part of the Money Matters program. We designed Money Matters to help you take better care of yourself by taking better care of your money. We’ll talk about how to make a spending plan based on your needs, wants, and values. When you feel good about your money management, you’re less stressed. You have more energy for the things that are important to you.

This course is made possible through the generous support of Money Matters founding sponsor TD Bank Group through the TD Ready Commitment. This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada under the Future Skills program. To learn more about the program, please visit the Money Matters website.
