I think that it is important in today’s world to have a second source of income. You can build that with Dividend Growth stocks in a TFSA. The TFSA lets you invest in stocks tax free. You cannot do things like day trading in such an account, but you can build a solid portfolio as an emergency fund.
Even in the best of economic conditions you can lose your job. Mine was threatened due to the firms I worked for downsizing. The latest would be the lockdowns we had for covid. If you have another source of income, you can weather employment problems better.
