Abstract: 

This research study explores the financial-related challenges impacting young professionals in the City of Vancouver. It approaches the topic from a life course perspective, considering how the financial-related challenges are interacting with life course milestones and adult role transitions. Qualitative interviewing is used to explore the experiences of eight young professionals living in Vancouver. Results from interviewing help to illuminate what financial and economic challenges come with being a young professional living in the City of Vancouver and what impacts the challenges are having in their lives.
