The Newcomer Settlement Program (NSP) of CFN is expanding its service horizon on financial empowerment. CFN is pleased to announce that we are now offering a 2-stream financial services: One-on-one Financial Coaching and Financial Literacy.
Financial Coaching is a confidential one-on-one help session with a trained financial coach which is a good fit for anyone who feels burdened by current and ongoing financial obligations, unsecured financial future or unable to make choices that allow the person to enjoy life. Four settlement practitioners acquired professional training in this field from Bow Valley College. In essence, they have become certified financial coaches. This service, is open to all clients (including staff), regardless of immigration class, and will also cater to Canadian citizens.
Financial Literacy aims to inform low income newcomers and individuals with financial problems about the financial system and services in Canada. Topics will include asset building, banking, budgeting, consumerism and credit. This will be incorporated in the counsellors’ information and orientation to clients, as well as in group sessions (workshops) which, will now be facilitated by our own trained counsellors. Through these staff, CFN is licensed to provide Financial Literacy training for clients.
