Financial Literacy Volunteer Updates

Volunteers have access to a wealth of resources on the CPA Canada website. Please note that you will need to log in using your CPA Canada account to access your resources. CPA Canada is continuously working on ways to develop new content, improve existing content and help make this a rewarding experience for both host organizations and volunteers. Evaluations are completed following each session that is delivered and they are reviewed regularly to see if session enhancements can be made. 

CPA Canada has updated their training model allowing members to watch a series of videos to learn more about the program in a flexible fashion. If you know other CPA members (colleagues, friends, or family) who are not yet registered as financial literacy volunteers, we would encourage you to promote the program to them. 

To further support members' understanding of session information and presentation techniques, a new in-depth, in-person training program has recently been created and will be delivered on September 18, 2018. For more details or to register, please visit our upcoming events page on our website.

Community Outreach

CPA Manitoba is working with various organization in the province to deliver financial literacy sessions. If you work at or know of an organization that may benefit from these sessions, please advise Kristine Tubiera, the CPA Manitoba Area Leader.
