Managing Your Finances in Times of Uncertainty

Date: Thursday, August 20, 2020
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm
Location: Online – link will be emailed to registered participants prior to workshop

In these times of great uncertainty, there are so many unanswered questions and so many aspects of our lives that are outside of our control. How, then, can we remain in control of our financial lives to build and protect our futures? How do we put ourselves in the best position to be able to weather any potential future storms still to come?

Join us for this interactive webinar where we will discuss:

  • Strategies for assessing where your family is financially right now, deciding where you would like to be and how you can best get there.
  • How to prepare for future unknowns, including the tax implications of many benefit programs and the effect of loan deferrals on our long term debt repayment plans.
  • OSAP deferrals and student COVID-related benefits.
  • Concrete strategies for rebuilding emergency funds and even sharing some everyday savings ideas.

There will be plenty of time for questions, so you can email them to us in advance or come with yours!

Facilitator: Anne Arbour, a Financial Educator with the Credit Counselling Society, a non-profit agency dedicated to helping Canadians manage their money better, solve their debt problems and learn about credit.
