Helping low income population find the finances


We’re launching a new program that will empower people living with low income and their service providers across the Basin and Boundary area.

We’ve partnered with CBAL to offer Financial Navigators: helping people living with low income figure out what support is available for them in the community, and building stronger partnerships among community service providers to offer the best service to their clients.

It will offer workshops, information and resources to navigate government benefits, financial institutions and financial literacy resources to increase the financial well-being of participants.

We’re offering this Financial Navigation program in 16 communities throughout the region: Arrow and Slocan Lakes, Grand Forks, Castlegar, Cranbook, Creston, Elk Valley, Golden, Kaslo and Balfour, Kimberley, Nelson, Revelstoke, Salmo, Slocan Valley, Trail and Area, Valemount, and Windermere Valley.

Contact Jaime by email or at 250-368-6360 ext 215 to get involved.
