Financial Coaching Program Success

“I was pleasantly surprised with the valuable knowledge I gained. While meeting with advisors at a bank it wasn’t clear how each account/process worked. It is also difficult to speak to peers about finances as my peers are also unfamiliar or are private about their money. However, through my coach’s help and descriptive explanation I was able to understand the inner workings of RRSPs, TFSAs, credit, and more in one go. The experience was truly rewarding and I would highly recommend it to anyone at any age as it is ideal to start saving as soon as possible to attain larger benefits. I am thankful for the opportunity and was very happy after my session. Thank you!!” – HN

“Today was really helpful. I am looking forward to the future. I can live better after learning this. I never planned or budgeted before. Back home there is no credit you just go with the flow and you don’t run out of money. I never budgeted until now. When I came to Canada I did the same thing [as before], but now I need to start to learn how to live in Canada.” – ZH

“I feel really good when we talk and things come to me. I mull things over and it doesn’t feel so bleak. I love the options and the resources. It isn’t hopeless.” – LY

“This program is wonderful and amazing for people who want to start their budgeting journey. You don’t have to have any background or specific knowledge or requirements to be in the program. Sherry was extremely helpful. Thank you for not talking down on us. ” – AL & KL
