Training

Training facilitators and building the capacity of community organizations is at the core of what we do at the Centre for Financial Literacy. Since 2008, we have trained more than 2,000 front line staff in over 800 community organizations nationwide to deliver effective and successful financial literacy programs.

In-person and online training options are available.  
 
In-person: 

Our 2-day in-person training is offered on a fee-for-service basis. (However there are occasions when training opportunities are offered for free if part of a funded program). If you are interested in organizing a training session for your community, please contact Caroline Munshaw at info@prospercanada.org for an estimate.

Online:

Our 7-week online course allows frontline workers to access facilitator training from anywhere in Canada. It is offered several times a year. It has many benefits:

  • Convenient – you can work on the course on your own time and at your own pace
  • Cost effective – no travel costs, less time away from the office
  • Easy and fun – interactive course using a variety of learning styles
  • Let's you connect with others across Canada – share ideas and best practices with other frontline community workers via a general discussion forum.
