Financial Seminars & Workshops
We are happy to offer financial seminars & workshops to our community. In 2014, we launched our financial literacy program in celebration of our 60th anniversary. Since then we've held many seminars with the aim of providing our members and community with tools and knowledge to be able to make good financial decisions.
Our seminars have focused on multiple topics, covering needs for all our community, from children in the Estonian kindergarten thru young families buying their first homes to boomers focused on retirement savings. Some seminar topics we've held in the past include; Buying Your First Home, Investments 101, Smart Ageing, Building a Budget, and more.
ECU has joined Canadian credit unions across the country in celebrating the launch of an award-winning financial literacy program: Each One, Teach One. This program focuses on going out to the community and giving financial workshops to help build knowledge, skills and confidence. Each One, teach One is an approach to providing basic financial knowledge, by volunteer staff from our credit union, without ties to any products or services.
