Tiktok is life for a lot of people, and it's full of content creators offering suggestions on all aspects of finance. They can't call it actual advice for legal reasons but we can call them Fintokers! Financial Tiktokers centre their content around a few major areas in the finance niche: getting started with stocks and investments, wealth and lifestyle, financial freedom and independence.
Canadian Fintokers are everywhere, sharing how they achieved financial freedom through various avenues such as affiliate marketing, mining cryptocurrencies, or day trading on the stock market. It may not be called advice but it doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth a look. Here's a list of 20 Canadian Ticktok financiers who should be on your For You Page (FYP).
@officialstock regularly shows how much money he’s losing. It’s kind of funny, but also makes me appreciate him more because he doesn’t hide his losses. He’s that authentic.
On TikTok, he gives stock and day trading advice mostly surrounding investing tips. Another theme of his channel is how he dropped out of Harvard to pursue day trading full-time. His videos show how he’s made over $1 million after four years of day trading.

Why follow financial Tiktokers?
Curating this list, I felt overwhelmed by the unending depth of digital financial knowledge I never knew existed. It's like I was a child staring into the night sky and understanding for the first time that all those stars are very very very far away from each other and me. If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by the daily grind, financial anxiety and pressures of adulting, these Tiktokers could help you break free. Or at the very least, they could help you find some stability.
Financial literacy is the most powerful resource you have. With all the amazing, free content available at the touch of a button or through a podcast, there is no excuse not to educate yourself. Tiktok offers a vast universe of untapped resources. Your ticket to wealth could already be in the palm of your hand. Check out the financier whose topic or idiom suits you best, and learn all you can. Maybe financial independence is easier to achieve and closer than we think.
