What we're about
We often hear about people or events geared toward health & wellness, mental wellness, emotional wellness, spiritual wellness, and so on. But yet we hear very little talk of "financial wellness". We sincerely hope that is about to change!
This Meetup group is for anyone interested in learning how money works and raising their level of financial literacy. We live in one of the wealthiest countries in the world, yet Canadians carry record levels of debt, many retire poor and many more live pay cheque to pay cheque.
We do not learn the basic fundamentals of how to manage our money in school. We simply don't know what we don't know. Even though we are flooded with financial news, channels, and websites, financial literacy remains as murky as ever.
We will all be using money for the rest of our lives. Understanding how money works is part of taking care of our family. It makes sense that the more that we know, the better the decisions we can make, now and in the future!
Each meetup will discuss various topics, current issues, open discussions or a variety of workshops. We may also host some special events, such as hearing from industry professionals or professional money managers that we would normally not have access to on our own. I am also open to hearing from any of you that may have suggestions as to ideas or suggestions that may be of value to you. Feel free to message me anytime.
I look forward to meeting all of you!
