Life N' Death: Family and Life Planning with Vancity and Brood

How can we plan for the expected and unexpected? In life (and death), finance plays a huge role in the options you have at your fingertips. It can be so stressful planning for the future.

  • A reminder that this series is for women and gender-non-conforming people only
  • A week before the first workshop, we will send out a short questionnaire so our instructors can get a sense of the demographic they are speaking with
  • Although we welcome people that live outside of Canada, most content will be directed towards Canadian finance
  • If you are a business owner or an aspiring business owner, make sure you check out our "Mind Your Business" series - ALL "It's Personal" sessions are included with the "Mind Your Business" series admission!
