Financial Fitness Series image

Many students at the post-secondary level have entered, very quickly, the world of financial costs, responsibilities, planning, spending, debt, credit cards and so much more. Most will not have had any preparation in public school for these financial challenges and responsibilities – a situation we hope to change going forward.

To help cultivate financial confidence among our students, Sheridan’s Financial Aid & Awards Office has partnered with the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) to deliver a series of workshops this November, what we are calling our Financial Fitness Series.

Sheridan will be offering 7 workshops as part of the Financial Fitness Series. This series will allow you to explore topics ranging from budgeting basics and goal setting to investments and purchasing your first home. These workshops were designed using feedback from students across Canada and will include valuable resources for each topic.

So, what’s in it for you? By registering for the workshops, we are providing you with the tools and information you need to start your financial journey. The information you learn will carry with you for the rest of your life. Further, students who register and attend at least 5 out of the 7 workshops are eligible for:

  • Co-Curricular Record (CCR) credit
  • An electronic ‘Financial Advocacy’ badge that can be added to your achievement section of your LinkedIn profile and other social media platforms.
  • A chance to win a $250 monetary prize!

Get started by signing up for each workshop. We look forward to seeing you there!
