Borrowing 101: Financing Basics | Online Workshop-Webinar

Most Canadians have borrowed money for something – a home, a vehicle, or other smaller items. But do we really know the ins and outs of borrowing? Using credit wisely can help us achieve our goals however it’s crucial that we know exactly what we’re getting into. In the Borrowing 101 workshop/webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Identify the 5 C’s of credit
  • Describe the components of your credit score
  • Calculate your debt service ratio
  • Describe the different types of financing including:
    • Secured financing
    • Unsecured financing
    • Installment loans
    • Vehicle financing versus leasing
    • Mortgages
    • Lines of credit
    • Credit cards
    • Student loans
    • Co-signed and joint loans
    • Short term and/or high interest products
    • Retail credit
    • Payday loans

The webinar is 1 hour, interactive and even fun! 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.
