Get Informed: Credit Counselling Society

Learn About: Whether you're adopting or giving birth, there are going to be financial considerations you need to start thinking about to prepare for your child. Planning for a new child requires changes to your budget and it's never too late to start. In the planning for your New Arrival workshop, you will learn:

  • The basics of the Canadian maternity and parental benefit system
  • How to budget for each stage of your leave period: before, during and after
  • Things you will need to invest in prior to your child's arrival
  • Strategies to save for your big ticket items
  • Where to find resources and savings

All participants will walk away from the workshop with a better understanding of the financial changes that will occur with a new addition to the family as well as tips and tricks to navigate this new stage of life.

The Credit Counselling Society is an accredited non-profit charity that helps Canadians solve their money problems. They do this by providing free credit counselling, low-cost debt solutions, and education to help you manage your money better.
