Emergency Fund

Save up for the unexpected

Rounding it up

  • It’s always a good time to build your own little financial safety net. Begin by figuring out how much you want to put away in this “just in case” fund.

  • The less predictable your income is, the more money you should set aside.

  • After calculating how much money you want to stash away, have your bank automatically deduct it from your paycheque.

  • Don’t let your fund just sit there—let it grow by putting it in a High Interest Savings Account (HISA).
