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.

This past November, to help cultivate financial confidence among our students, Sheridan’s Financial Aid & Awards Office partnered with the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) to deliver a series of workshops called our Financial Fitness Series.

Sheridan offered 7 workshops as part of the Financial Fitness Series. This series explored 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 include valuable resources for each topic.

Those who attended at least 5 out of the 7 workshops were 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.
