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.
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 to 6. 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
- Budgeting Beyond Basics
- Buying or Leasing (Houses, Cars)
- Saving for Education
- Taxation in Canada, Filing Income Taxes
- Basic Investments
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.
