HOW WE CAN HELP

FINANCIAL LITERACY EDUCATION

Financial literacy is having the knowledge, skills and confidence to make responsible financial decisions.

Credit Counselling Canada members present financial literacy programs through customized:

  • In-person workshops
  • Community-based presentations
  • Online webinars
  • Employee lunch n’ learn sessions
  • In-house classes

These programs take place with community groups, organizations, employers, youth, students and seniors.

Our members are located from coast to coast. Their trained staff know your community, can speak to your issues and have the resources to help. They are equipped to meet the needs of your group and can deliver programs on a wide variety of financial topics including:

  • Debt solutions
  • Understanding credit
  • Fraud detection and prevention
  • Budgeting and money management
  • Smarter spending

In addition to customized programs, our members offer online tools, blogs, newsletters, podcasts and print resources helping people learn how to use credit properly, spend wisely and plan for their financial future.

Ask about educational workshops, presentations, print resources and online tools by contacting your local Credit Counselling Canada member agency.

“The financial literacy presentation was a great opportunity to have a community agency in the classroom and school. The activities were fantastic and the kids had a lot of fun. Great for me, as the information aligned well with my curriculum. I hope to do this again next year!”
