3 Canadian YouTube Channels That Will Change The Way You Look At Money


Some people seem to look at YouTube and see a kid’s toy. It’s nothing but funny cat videos and music; there’s certainly nothing of substance there. It’s just another one of those apps on your phone that goes unused until Aunt Patty forwards you a link to Pen Pineapple Apple Pen and you watch it, confused as to what you’re supposed to be getting out of it.

YouTube is so much more, though. We’ve talked about some YouTubers who have made it big before, but we’ve never really dug into the best thing about YouTube: there is good, high-quality content, for everyone on just about any topic. YouTube is a vast library of knowledge, teeming with educational, instructional and extremely interesting content that can have a real and lasting effect on your life. There are top-notch cooking channels like Food Wishes. There are channels that teach you how to build things like Frank Howarth and Jimmy Diresta. There are channels that follow the process of a crazy inventor as he turns an idea into a real, tangible thing like Matthias Wandel. There are news networks like The Young Turks, and education like Crash Course and sports talk like Dude Perfect. Whatever your interest or need is, YouTube has something for you. Financial wellbeing is no different. Even financial wellbeing, credit building and becoming debt free in Canada.
