Borowing for the Books
The Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) has partnered with Algoma University to offer a series of virtual workshops, designed to help improve the financial education and capability of University and College students.
Coming out of this workshop you will have a better understanding on various programs available to help you pay for your education, why it’s important to pay off credit cards in full monthly, how to improve your credit score and how to manage your debt so as to reduce your financial stress. From scholarships, grants and bursaries to loans and earned income, there are many ways to acquire funds to pay for this investment in your future. However, you have to be careful; it’s easy to fall into the debt trap. This module will give you the confidence to pursue your goals by helping you understand good and bad debt and the implications of a bad credit rating.
