Credit Counselling Society - The Truth About Credit

Alberta Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) has partnered with the Credit Counselling Society to bring to you a session on the truth about credit.

Ever wondered what the difference between a credit score and a credit report was?  Do you know what builds (or reduces) your credit score?  Credit can be very confusing and this can lead to decisions that may impact our overall credit profile.  Decisions and actions that are seemingly positive may actually impact us negatively.

Information is key to making decisions that positively affect our credit and overall financial situation. In the The Truth About Credit workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Identify what’s in it for you to be good with your money and credit

  • Identify what is on your credit report and the credit rating system

  • Identify the 5 factors that affect your credit score

  • Check your own credit report

  • Name who may be interested in your credit score/report

  • Identify some myths around credit

  • Identify ways to build your credit and avoid scams

This is a 90 minute workshop that is fun and interactive!  We take a “grab and go” approach – grab an idea or two and go try it. All participants will walk away with ideas, resources and the full curriculum upon request.

This event will be held in both Edmonton and Calgary.
