Living a Financially Healthy Life (Presented by CFEE)

January 18, 2024
12:30 to 1:30 p.m.

Presented by CFEE (Canadian Foundation for Economic Education)

The Financial Aid and Awards presents ‘Thrifty Thursdays’, a series of workshops to help you stay on track financially.  

We’re pleased to welcome Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) to Georgian College to present their workshop for students new to Canada.

“The goal of “Living a Financially Healthy Life” is to help you develop a healthy attitude towards money.

Coming out of this workshop you will be able to make more informed decisions about purchases, be able to create a budget that includes savings and can help reduce your financial stress and know how to apply the magic of compound interest to increase your savings. You will learn how to take control of your money by setting goals and creating a budget that emphasizes paying yourself first; how to recognize the difference between a need and a want; and why it’s important to make savings an integral part of your life, not an afterthought.”

We are excited to welcome our speaker from CFEE, Kyle Datzkiw:
