What Past Attendees Say

“I took the Money Matters course in the summer before entering grade 12

and now that I'm heading to university to live on my own for the first time,

I feel confident about my finances. We learned about pitfalls to avoid as a

student and how to budget our money responsibility. Everything learned was practical so I'm really glad I took this course. "
