What is Financial Education?
Do you wish you knew more about personal finances? Dealing with money can be confusing, but when you’re financially literate you have the power to make informed choices, and even avoid money problems. Our financial literacy resources are free, easy to understand, and informative. Best of all: we’re happy to share!
We believe that financial education should be accessible to everyone, at all ages and stages of your financial journey. We help you better understand your finances and avoid money problems through engaging course content that demystifies all that financial jargon.
We provide educational opportunities for everyone through in person workshops, webinars, and online courses; for employees through our MoneySmart Living lunch and learns; for students through post-secondary presentations; for the community at large through free workshops at your local public library; and through Financial First Aid courses which help community service providers identify the need for financial help within their communities.
Many of our in-depth financial education programs can be used to satisfy Continuing Education Units (CEU) requirements for a variety of accreditation too, so be sure to ask.

It’s no secret that being stressed about money makes it hard to work, and that’s why we offer wellness services to workplaces across Canada.
