Learn About: Whether you're adopting or giving birth, there are going to be financial considerations you need to start thinking about to prepare for your child.

- The basics of the Canadian maternity and parental benefit system
- How to budget for each stage of your leave period: before, during and after
- Things you will need to invest in prior to your child's arrival
