  • 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!”
