The Canadian Foundation for Economic Education ( 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.

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 those that have achieved Canada Language Benchmark (CLB) 4/5.

Topics include:

  • 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.
