Financial Literacy

We believe everyone should have the information and resources they need to feel empowered when making financial decisions; to feel comfortable they have the tools to create financial success for their family – whatever that may look like.

Check out our Financial Fitness resource library. It covers topics from basic budgeting and building up your credit score to navigating mortgages and investments. We’re always adding more resources so check back often or sign up for our monthly e-newsletter.

Financial Literacy Workshops

Interior Savings has adopted Each One, Teach One: a financial literacy program developed by Vancity Credit Union and, in the cooperative spirit, now shared with credit unions across Canada. Each One Teach One is intended to deliver basic financial skills workshops in community settings. The program has won awards for the impact it is having in raising financial literacy levels.

How does the program work?

Delivered in plain language – and in local church basements, neighbourhood houses and community centres – the approach of Each One, Teach One is to meet individuals where they are, when they seek training to build the knowledge, skills and confidence they need in order to make financial decisions that are right for them.

Topics covered by the training sessions include: basic banking and budgeting, credit cards and prepaid cards, loans, debt smarts, credit scores, fraud prevention and much more. Participants can rest assured that the workshops are not a forum for a sales pitch. The intent here is truly to raise basic financial literacy levels and help people feel more confident about their finances and their future. Oh, and did we mention, there is no fee to participate?

How do I sign-up?
