Budgeting and Saving

Two key parts of money management to help you achieve financial success.

Could You Survive Missing a Paycheque? A new survey says 60% of Canadians couldn’t

Are you able to afford missing one paycheque? Last week the Canadian Payroll Association released a survey which showed that 6 out of 10 Canadians would be unable to meet their financial obligations if they only missed one paycheque.

Credit Counselling Society’s President & CEO, Scott Hannah, and our Winnipeg Credit Counsellor, Christi Quinn, discussed what this means to normal consumers and how Canadians can protect themselves from personal financial disaster on CJOB Radio, Winnipeg.

Poll
