The problem

Statistics show that a growing number of Canadians are under increasing financial pressure. To better manage their income and expenses, it is utmost important to create and maintain a budget. However, only 49% of Canadians report having one. There are various reasons cited for people that don’t budget, with one of the biggest issues being that they are overwhelmed about having to track and manage their finances.

With that in mind, nubudget is created, aiming to make budget tracking and logging an easier, more streamlined, and on-the-go experience. Employing a zero-based, envelope-based model, nubudget makes sure that every single cent of your budget will have a role, making it easier to see where your money comes and goes.
