Living a Financially Healthy Life Webinar

The Office of Research Trainees and KITE Trainee Executive Committee invite you to a webinar on Living a Financially Healthy Life, in partnership with the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) and National Bank of Canada.

This Peer-to-Peer workshop will be lead by Dr. Neha Dewan, a postdoctoral researcher at KITE, with support and training from CFEE.

Finances are an unavoidable and important part of life. Join us to examine the foundational skills of budgeting, goal setting, saving, and effective spending. With these concepts under your belt, you’ll be ready for the next stages of your financial journey.

The goal of “Living a Financially Healthy Life” is to help you develop a healthy attitude towards money. Coming out of this workshop you will be able to make more informed decisions about purchases, be able to create a budget that includes savings and can help reduce your financial stress and know how to apply the magic of compound interest to increase your savings. You will learn how to take control of your money by setting goals and creating a budget that emphasizes paying yourself first; how to recognize the difference between a need and a want; and why it’s important to make savings an integral part of your life, not an afterthought.

This webinar is free and open to everyone. Register here
