Our Financial Literacy Program relaunched in June 2020 and this week marked the 250th person accessing the program. 62% of those who accessed the program completed a budget with our Financial Literacy Program Coordinator. A budget is an important tool for understanding your current financial situation and making a plan to move forward in a positive way.

The top topics that people wanted to speak about are:

  • Budgeting
  • Dealing with debt
  • Help catching up with utility bills.

The Financial Literacy Program and the Utility Assistance Program at the United Way of Bruce Grey work closely together to support people in a holistic way.
