What is Money Smart: Economic Empowerment?

Do you want to learn how to save your money, and use it wisely? If you are new to Canada, or if you struggle with money, we can help you understand the financial system.

Money Smart offers help in 4 different ways:

1. Financial Coaching 
Financial Coaching offers one-on-one support for anything related to your finances. Meet with an expert who can answer your questions and help you make the right financial decisions.

2. RESP Sign-Up
Help your children build a successful future in Canada by opening an RESP account! A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) helps pay for your children’s education. We host regular RESP sign-up events.

3. Tax Clinics
In Canada, you pay taxes on the income that you earn. Every year, your taxes must be filed to the Canadian government. If you struggle to file your taxes, we offer free Tax Clinics to guide you through the process. (Must be low-income to be eligible.)

4. Financial Literacy Education
Curious about other financial topics? We host regular workshops and special events covering financial services in Canada, the banking system, mortgages, budgeting, credit and more.
