Best Canadian Personal Finance Youtubers to watch in 2024

Introduction

Learning about personal finance is a lot easier when you can consume the content in your medium of choice. For those of you who love Youtube, we bring you the list of the top 30 Canadian personal finance youtubers to watch in 2024. Adding these channels to your viewing rotation can vastly improve your knowledge in personal finance, budgeting, investing and more!

 

Criteria For Inclusion

My goal is to help Canadians Improve their financial literacy, so included in this list are Canadian Youtubers who have published in the last six months whose content was broad-based enough to cover personal finance topics. There may be one or two included who are not as recent, but their content was strong, so I wanted to have them even if the latest video was a little older than six months. 

I have grouped the Youtube channels into three main categories so you can select from the group you find most appealing.

  1. That’s a great list, but I think it would benefit from another category: Decumulation i.e. how best to extract all that money and make it last through to your last days. It’s usually more complicated than budgeting and investing. Also, knowing how the money will be best drawn-down is crucial to knowing which account you should be investing it.

      1. Yes, below are a few examples. They are all from financial planners, but as you’ll see, getting the withdrawal strategy right, requires a fair amount of computation. I built my own retirement income plan in Excel, and it has taken many hundreds of hours to assemble as all the tax and benefit regulations need to be accounted for.
