PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

Why do we need to place a priority on our financial wellness? Why is being financially prepared so important? 
Did you know that financial wellness is just one of the many dimensions of wellness and prioritizing a strong, healthy financial wellness can help you stay mentally healthy and able to face other life's challenges.

Teachers can get so busy taking care of the needs of others that they often don’t have time to focus on their own wellness – but it’s crucial. Financial wellness is a big part of that. 40% of Canadians in a recent study who say they’re “financially unwell” are more likely to report stress associated with their money troubles. 88% of those say they’re “often” or “sometimes” worried about their finances, 49% say it distracts them at work.

What if there was a way to easily learn tools – things you can set up in just a few minutes – to help alleviate that stress? The first step is knowing what some of these are – and that’s why this session was developed.

This session is built to give you tools to take control of your financial wellness. How to start saving - an emergency fund plus save for your future. Where and how to invest your hard earned money, we take a look at the markets and they affect your investments. Easy budgeting tips - should I pay down my debt or save for the future? Is a common question we answer here! We also look at the biggest financial risks that can happen to you and how to lessen their impact. The rising costs of long term care and the financial impact of a life changing illness are two of the most common financial risks that we may face in our lives. Being financially prepared is the key to strong financial wellness.
