AN INCREASING NUMBER
OF YOUNG SAVERS

For the past few years, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ’s communication strategies have been aimed mainly at people under the age of 40 and members of cultural communities. And these efforts are paying off: with the 2012-2013 RRSP campaign, the Fonds increased by 27% the number of enrolments of people under the age of 40, an impressive increase, especially after the results of the previous campaign, when the number of new enrolments in this age group had jumped 39%. Furthermore, as young people are more likely to take advantage of the Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP), redemptions made to enable shareholders to buy their first home totalled $34 million for the financial year. It should also be noted that the Fonds’ presence in English-speaking media contributed to increasing its recognition by the general public.
