Welcome to Credit Education Week Canada (CEWC), now celebrating its sixth year as our nation’s premier event for promoting sound personal money management. This year’s focus is on money resolutions, the kind of firm financial decision making that makes for better economics on a personal scale and, by extension, a better economy for all Canadians.
The great American writer and thinker Ralph Waldo Emerson had something to say about making resolutions and sticking to them. “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen,” Emerson told us. It is in this spirit that we are moving forward this year nationwide with a full roster of engaging events, workshops, and presentations – all with a view to encouraging sound financial decision making.
Money resolutions can make all the difference for families and individuals, particularly those who are adrift in stormy financial seas. With wisdom - and above all the resolve to set and achieve financial goals - the storm can soon pass. Navigational tools come in handy, too, and you’ll find lots of them here in this year’s issue of CEWC Focus Magazine, which explores a number of subjects that can help any family or individual find the resolve to improve finances. From creating budgets, boosting savings, and setting goals, to getting organized, becoming dollar smart, and developing healthy financial habits, there is plenty to read about in the pages ahead.
As usual, CEWC is made possible through a great group of organizations and people. On behalf of Credit Canada Debt Solutions, Capital One, and a long list of other corporate and community sponsors, I welcome your participation. Activities in Toronto, across Ontario, and throughout Canada are sure to assist in CEWC’s overriding mission, which is to improve financial literacy everywhere so that all of us as Canadians can attain, and maintain, greater financial peace of mind.
All the best,
Chief Executive Officer
