Post-secondary education is the biggest thing you’ll ever have to save for.
Have you ever wondered how much it really costs to have a baby? We’ve all heard having a kid can be expensive but what do those numbers actually look like? Whether you’re planning on having a baby in the near or distant future or like me, are curious about getting to know the nitty-gritty of how much raising a kid in Canada is then today’s episode should pique your interest.
Joining me on the podcast today is Vivian Leung, Senior Principal, Taxation at CPA Canada. Prior to her current role, Vivian was the Program Director for Tax Education where she was responsible for developing and implementing the strategic direction of CPA Canada income tax education.
As quoted in Babies: How to Afford Your Bundle of Joy, Vivian shares from both personal and professional experience what it costs to have a family today. We dive into whether advice from our mothers holds up to today’s standards and what having a baby looks like on your finances in the short-term, like parental leave and long-term, like saving for post-secondary education.
