November is Financial Literacy Month

Financial Planning 2018


1. Invest in Your Financial Well-Being
Set goals to manage your money effectively by creating a detailed budget. Track and monitor your spending on a weekly basis to achieve your goals. 

2. Pay off Debt to Reduce Financial Stress
Make a plan - a heavy debt load can make you vulnerable if your financial situation changes, or you need to pay for an unexpected expense. Our loan calculator can help determine the amount you can borrow and what your repayment schedule might be if you need a consolidation loan.

3. Make Informed Financial Decisions
The more you know about your financial responsibilities, the easier it is to prepare for costly expenses.

4. Teach Your Children About Money 
Financial literacy is an essential life skill, just like reading and writing.  Here are a few tips to start good  financial habits early:

  • Talk with your kids about the reasons behind your purchases when you’re at the grocery store.
  • Open a Just Youth Savings account with ACU so your child can see how their money grows.
  • Start early to contribute to a RESP to maximize the benefits.
