If you start saving $1 per day when your child or grandchild is born, and this is continued for 60 years, it is possible they might have enough to retire just from the $1 per day.  Note that this table is not referring to RRSPs, but to deposits to a savings, brokerage or other non-registered account.

If you can save $3 per day, just multiply everything above by 3, or if you save $5 per day, multiply the above numbers by 5, etc.
