The Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (www.cfee.org) is organizing a virtual workshop designed for newcomers and recent immigrants to Canada designed to help newcomers adapt to the realities of life in Canada, with a financial focus. The workshop presentation will run from 9:15 – 10:45 a.m. PT followed by a Question & Answer period from 10:45 – 11:15 a.m. PT.
Our goal for the workshop is to help participants to:
- think about financial matters in a Canadian context (to identify what is the same, and what may be different from a participant’s country of origin);
- reflect on life events and the financial decisions that relate to those events; and
- practice the appropriate vocabulary and English language terms around money and financial decisions in Canada.
This workshop is for students enrolled in programming at ICA Greater Victoria and will be offered with interpretation services in Arabic, Hindi, Mandarin, Thai and Vietnamese (TBC).
- Canada’s Banking System
- Bank Accounts
- Using Credit
- Goals, Values and Decision Making
- Making Your Money Grow to Achieve A Goal – RESPs, RRSPs, TFSAs
The financial challenges of living in a COVID-19 Pandemic will be addressed and participants will be introduced to a web-based tool, addressing financial questions linked to life events and money decisions that Canadians make.
