Financial Literacy

Financial Literacy is having the knowledge, skills, and ability to understand, analyze, and use information to make informed financial decisions.

The Aboriginal Business and Community Development Centre aims to improve Financial Literacy in the community by hosting FREE Financial Literacy workshops to various groups and individuals. Workshops are interactive and conversation-based and cover topics such as banking, money management, saving, borrowing money, debt, and credit.
 
Workshops for individuals are held at the Aboriginal Business and Community Development Centre located at 555 George Street approximately three times a month. These workshops are hosted on different days and at different times of the day in order to accommodate all different schedules. 

Workshops can also be hosted to pre-arranged groups of individuals such as Women’s Groups, Adult Education Groups, etc. Group workshops are generally held over a 9:30-3:30 work day at your location although specialized arrangements can be made. Preferred group size is between 5 and 12 individuals. To book a group workshop, contact us at (250) 562- 6325

Financial Literacy Tip of the Month: 

Everything adds up! Do you want to have some extra spending change? Try making coffee at home instead of spending between $10-$30 a week on going out for specialty coffee.
