Course description

This course is about credit, what it is, how to use it wisely, and how to get it under control when you have a lot of debt. You’ll look at different kinds of credit and the cost of borrowing. You’ll also learn about ways to plan ahead for when you need to borrow money.

This course is part of the Money Matters for Indigenous People program. We designed Money Matters for Indigenous People to help you take better care of yourself by taking better care of your money. We’ll talk about how to manage money online and in your daily life.

No matter who you are or what your situation is, it can be hard to think and talk openly about money. It can be hard even with people you know well. Be patient with yourself as you get started. We organized this course around the Indigenous “4 Rs” – the values of respect, responsibility, reciprocity, and relationships. The 4 Rs will guide our talk and may help you feel more comfortable.

When you feel good about money and money management, you’re less stressed. You have more energy for the things that are important to you.

This course is made possible through the generous support of Money Matters founding sponsor TD Bank Group through the TD Ready Commitment. To learn more about the program, please visit the Money Matters website.
