Consolidated Credit brings financial literacy into communities across the country
Consolidated Credit Counselling Services of Canada invests significant resources and countless hours providing free community outreach programs on financial literacy and debt management in communities across Canada. These seminars take place face-to-face, in classroom settings, or even via the Internet through webinars. We work with hundreds of companies, community groups, employee assistance program providers, all levels of government, the Canadian Forces, and non-profit organizations who have identified financial stress as a key component of their employees’ and members’ overall health and productivity.
Consolidated Credit educates consumers on the importance of good money management for today and the future. Attendees learn tools in groups or individually to live debt free and financially independent. These educational initiatives have taken root in many organizations across the country. The response to the resources available has grown exponentially – we have educated Canadians through workshop and seminar participation, one on one face-to-face meetings and distribution of our specially designed booklets on financial literacy. We want to put personal finance tools in the hands of Canadians.
Consolidated Credit’s goal is to make this free, personal financial education and counselling available to those who may otherwise not have access. In addition, the company strives to educate employers about the value of having budget-conscious and financially savvy employees. An employee that is stressed about debt will be distracted and unproductive in the workplace, and that’s where Consolidated Credit can help. Our educational materials are displayed in common office areas such as break and lunch rooms across the country.
Here’s what people have to say about Consolidated Credit’s Community Outreach Seminars:
“Our participants have stated the information learned has been invaluable, teaching them how to address their debts one at a time and helping to resolve them. Although people attending the workshops are experiencing extreme financial stress, they quickly feel at ease.”
Employment Services Supervisor,
“A majority of our clientele are individuals who are currently homeless or at risk of being homeless. Most have a very limited budget, no credit, and don’t understand the basics and importance of a proper budget. Since 2012, Consolidated Credit runs 18 different seminars throughout the year for our program and the feedback from the clients is that they have learned a lot and now understand the importance of budgeting.”
“Our youth participants have benefited tremendously from the sessions conducted by Consolidated Credit. Their levels of awareness regarding money management, identity theft, credit and credit ratings have been heightened. We are grateful for this partnership and we have been recommending your services to other community-based groups.”
“Our employees were very appreciative of the unbiased information that was shared; information for the sole purpose of education, without the sales pitch at the end that can often come with a financial education presentation.”
