Description

On October 27th from 8:30am to 3pm, Multicultural Association of Wood Buffalo will be hosting a one-day Financial Literacy Conference with keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities. Join us for a day of learning and engagement on important topics such as personal finances, real estate, investment, and much more.

Did you know that according to Equifax Canada, Fort McMurray residents carry the highest average debt per household in the entire country? In addition, Fort McMurray real estate is down more than 25% since the peak of 2014. Recent national surveys show that 67% of Canadians are not confident in their abilities to handle their financial planning. Are you one of the 67%?
