Virtual Workshop for Newcomers and Recent Immigrants to Canada - Managing Your Money in Canada, Intermediate
The Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (www.cfee.org) is organizing a virtual workshop designed to help newcomers and recent immigrants to Canada 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:

• 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 COVID19 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.

Please visit the Managing Your Money in Canada website for more details - www.mymic.ca

This workshop will be presented by Kevin Maynard, Vice-President of the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education, and hosted on the Zoom videoconferencing platform.

Feb 3, 2021 07:00 PM in Atlantic Time (Canada)
