There's no question that today's Generation Y, young adults in their twenties and early thirties, are facing financial headwinds.

The new Globe Investor Gen Y money page is designed to help millennials navigate the daunting and confusing world of personal finance. Check it out here: http://tgam.ca/genymoney

The young Canadians we heard from are worried about real estate, retirement, debt, careers, living costs, kids, the economy and taxes, as well as how to start investing.

Our Gen Y money site will tackle these and other issues. Rob Carrick, The Globe's personal finance columnist, kicked off the coverage with a story about why young Canadians are right to be worried about retirement. Next he came up with a new timetable of financial milestones that can get millennials everything they want, just later in life.

Rob was also online answering your questions on Reddit on Monday, April 4.

Further down the road, there will be an interactive tool to help young Canadians save for a down payment, videos from our personal finance expert Preet Banerjee and advice from our millennial bloggers on tax filing and how to balance debt repayment with saving for a down payment.

Check out our interactive online tools, including the 'Can I Afford to Move Out?' calculator, the Where in Canada Can You Afford to Rent? tool and the Can You Really Afford that Mortgage? spreadsheet.

We've lined up a few financial advisers to address your concerns in an online Q&A. Worried about real estate, student debt or investing? Send your questions to rluciw@globeandmail.com. Make sure to include your first name, age and where you live.

We will be publishing new material all the time, so come back and visit us. Or follow us on Twitter at @globemoney and through the hashtag #GenYmoney. Thanks for reading and if you have any thoughts on what you'd like to see us cover, shoot me an e-mail.
