For years I have been listening to money podcasts that keep telling me, “You need to start investing yesterday!!!” And they’re right! I know! But I kept getting held back by the fear of not really knowing what I was doing, not knowing how to invest, and not wanting to risk my money on something I didn’t understand.
And then I found it.
An online course that could help me.
What is it?
Investing Foundations for Canadians is an online course by Canadian financial expert Jessica Moorhouse that is meant to teach Canadians everything they need to know about the basics of investing so they can move toward their money goals with confidence.
Jessica Moorhouse is adamant that this course is for educational purposes only and is in no way financial advice, so keep that in mind as you work through the modules.
What you can expect:
There are 49 lessons that you can either watch or read through. They cover different types of investment products (like stocks, mutual funds, etc), investment accounts (including TFSAs and RRSPs), and how to create your own investment plans. And everything in the course is Canada-specific!!
What I loved about this course:
You get lifetime access! And Jessica is constantly updating the course so it stays relevant. She even uses the introductory module to track changes.
It is thorough! There is so much information packed into this course that I felt so much better about moving forward in getting started on my investing journey. Jessica not only teaches the lesson, but she provides examples and background history to help you really understand the foundations of investing.
The walkthrough lessons. There is a lesson on how to make investment goals and plan for your investments and there is a bonus module on how to plan for retirement. Those lessons felt like templates where I could just plug in my own information to figure out what I needed to do next.
Jessica is available for communication. Once you finish the course, you get a free 20 minute call with the course creator herself! She also encourages her students to email her with questions and join the course Facebook group.
It’s all Canadian content! Too many times have I been listening to money podcasts and had to sift through information that just wasn’t relevant to me! But everything I need to know as a baby Canadian investor is all in one place with this course.
How much does it cost?
$299 CAD. Boom. That’s it.
It’s a little bit of an investment, yes. But is it worth it? YES.
