Financial Literacy

Financial Literacy in our Communities

Looking to incorporate a financial literacy program in your classroom or organization? We’d love to bring our “It’s a Money Thing” program to high schools and organizations in our communities!

Our program is completely customizable, and can be tailored to your needs. We’ll work with you to provide the presentation(s) you want and to fulfill the need of financial literacy for all those seeking that information. We can cover several topics in one visit, or we can visit several times presenting one topic per visit. How it’s incorporated is completely up to you!

We know that Financial Literacy can be seen as boring – that’s why we provide facilitators that are energetic and interactive with the audience. So, we’re not ‘old school’ and stand up in the front of the classroom and kids hear “yada, yada, yada”. We create engagement and interaction to make the best of the financial literacy topics.

Financial Literacy is important to us – we want to be part of making our next generation finance savvy.

Advice

identity theft

Identity theft is nothing new, and yet it still manages to cost its victims billions of dollars (yes, that’s billions with a “b”) globally each year—not to mention the time and hassle involved in recovering a stolen identity.


spot scams


Whether it’s online, over the phone or in person, scammers are always coming up with new ways of influencing their targets to act in ways they might not otherwise. By staying calm in high-stress situations and by giving ourselves a little extra time to think, we’re better able to spot recurring scammers’ favourite tactics, to avoid a state of amygdala hijack and to save ourselves from making costly mistakes.

Financial planning

 Even little changes can make a huge impact on a long-term savings goal that has decades to compound and grow. Because time is on your side, there is a lot of value in prioritizing contributions (even small ones) to your savings goals now.

While interest rates may be low, you do have options. Start early, invest wisely and give yourself the time you need to reach your goals. And remember, you aren’t alone. Seek advice from a financial planner or stop by your friendly neighbourhood credit union branch to sit down and talk with a professional about your options.
