RBC Future Launch
& McGill University
PSBX collaborated with RBC Future Launch and McGill University to offer a free course in Personal Finances. The McGill Personal Finance Essentials course is a free online learning experience taught by professors from the McGill University's Desautels Faculty of Management.
This is a completely free program offered in both English and French for anyone who has an interest in their personal finances. After a statistic was released in Canada that 35% of Canadians don't save for retirement, and 44% of Canadians live paycheque to paycheque. This program was designed to drive awareness of these statistics and designed as a solution to help Canadians become more financially literate.
The course covers key financing literary topics - tackling subjects like Debt and Borrowing, Money and Budget Building, Investment, Real Estate, and Investment Psychology.
Since McGill's Personal Finance Essentials Course was launched in November 2020, more than 50, 000 people have registered for the course and waiting lists continue to grow for future course opportunities.
