Financing a car
For many Canadians, a car is a necessary part of everyday life. Next to a home, a car is often among the biggest purchases an individual or a family will make in their lifetime. If you are thinking about buying or leasing a car, it is important to do your research, make a budget and balance your needs with what you can reasonably afford over the long term.
