Financial Education Online

Check out our free, self-directed online courses and learn about money the way you want.

Online Courses

Are you like us and dream of budgets and credit reports? Just kidding, we don’t dream about budgets. We dream about a world where every Canadian can access financial information and education when they want, how they want, in the ways they want. 

In a recent survey we conducted with our clients, we learned that the 4 things that appeal to them about online learning are: 

  • I can do it on my own time. 
  • I can work at my own pace.  
  • I can repeat the learning content as often as I want. 
  • I can do it any place, on any device. 

We’ve heard you loud and clear and have created a series of self-directed courses for you to take on your own time, at your own pace, and on any device.   

You can take our online courses in any order.  In fact, feel free to repeat them.  Even better, do a course with your partner, as a family, with your friends, or in your workplace. And feel free to share them with others.
