November is Financial Literacy Month!

Please join Tim St.Vincent on November 2nd & 9th for a in depth and often overlooked discussion on credit!


Ever wondered what the difference between a credit score and a credit report was?  Do you know what builds (or reduces) your credit score?  Credit can be very confusing and this can lead to decisions that may impact our overall credit profile.  

Decisions and actions that are seemingly positive may actually impact us negatively.

Information is key to making decisions that positively affect our credit and overall financial situation. In The Truth About Credit workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Identify what’s in it for you to be good with your money and credit
  • Identify what is on your credit report and the credit rating system 
  • Identify the 5 factors that affect your credit score
  • Check your own credit report 
  • Name who may be interested in your credit score/report
  • Identify some myths around credit
  • Identify ways to build your credit and avoid scams

    *Please note: This presentation will be held in two parts. November 2nd & completed on November 9th.

    *Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this has been made into a WEBINAR ONLY event.*
