Financial Literacy

Manage Finances Digitally: Designed Specifically for Seniors

The right knowledge and information is empowering

For many seniors, using digital banking and financial management tools can be new and confusing. That’s why we created the Digital Financial Literacy Program – to help seniors understand and feel confident using these important tools.

The program offers training that covers everything from online banking basics to more advanced topics like cyber security. Seniors will learn how to safely and effectively manage their finances online, giving them the independence and peace of mind that comes with being digitally literate.

Increase your digital financial literacy and unlock your confidence

When it comes to digital finances, seniors are at a higher risk for crime and abuse. This is because they are often not as familiar with the technology and how to use it securely. Seniors may also be more trusting of strangers and less likely to report a crime. The best way to protect yourself is to get educated about digital finances.

Our training is designed by seniors based on their experiences with online banking and digital financial management. Seniors have guided the content of the training material, helped test and refine it, and form the volunteer team that will deliver it. The finished product offers a much-needed resource for those who are struggling to keep up with the digital world. It will be user-friendly and tailored to seniors’ needs, making it an invaluable tool for promoting financial literacy.

The curriculum in our courses includes training on how to safely complete online banking, file management, navigate CRA accounts, file taxes, use multi-factor authentication, create digital signatures, awareness of public wifi risks, tips for e-transfer safety & more!
