You don’t need to have a lot of money to have a budget – no matter what you have, you can start spending smarter and saving right away. Understanding your cash flow early on can help get you set on the right track. It can provide you with the option of setting aside funds, which can add up in the long run!

To the benefit of students, Humber College and RBC have started a Financial Advising partnership that will focus on financial literacy. The joint commitment follows a five-part series, where we will review where and how to get started to be financially successful. The goal is to increase the financial success of students while in school and after graduation. The Financial Literacy workshops will begin in August 2022.

Each workshop is 60 minutes long and will also feature prizes and the chance to meet other first-year students. Attend 3/5 workshops to add the Financial Literacy Participant experience or 5/5 workshops to add the Financial Literacy Participant - Advanced experience to your CCR!
