Financial Literacy Month

November is Financial Literacy for all Canadians! Being financially knowledgeable is essential for all for our well-being and the economy as a whole. It is important for students to form a strong foundation to ensure their future financial success. This year, make it your personal goal to invest in your financial well being.

Our office will be hosting a week long of events at the lobby of the main building where we will give you tips on better managing your money, frequently asked questions and we will also be giving out prizes, so make sure to come by November 12-16.
