ABOUT YOUNG AND THRIFTY
Welcome to Young and Thrifty – a leading personal finance website for millennials in Canada. It’s your one-stop-shop for financial tips and advice and we tackle all the important money matters: everything from easy budgeting to investing to how to save money to credit card reviews.
The website was managed by Kyle Prevost and Justin Bouchard, two Canadian millennial money experts, entrepreneurs, and investors seeking to raise financial literacy among their peers. While Prevost and Bouchard have moved on to other projects, Young and Thrifty has expanded to include a posse of personal finance experts writing about millennial money on a weekly basis. Today, the website is recognized as one of the most popular personal finance websites in Canada, and has been featured in major media outlets such as CBC, The Globe & Mail, Toronto Star, Maclean’s, MoneySense, and CTV.
