The 5 most common, and avoidable, financial mistakes a graduate can make.

Personal finances can have a major influence on your mental and emotional well-being, so once you’ve graduated, financial planning should be one of your top priorities.

Unfortunately, today’s educational system, while it provides interesting theories and ideas about the world, does not adequately prepare students to take the right decisions about their personal finances.

The way in which young graduates approach financial planning in the years immediately following their time on campus can set the tone for future financial habits. By sticking to a strategy and a plan, recent graduates can avoid making costly financial mistakes.

Take the first step towards financial wellness: join us for a one-hour workshop on personal finance that will help you take control of your financial future!

Keynote speaker: After spending time in Vancouver working in the financial and technology space, Gabriel Lalonde decided to move back to Ottawa to transfer his financial background and relationship- building skills to helping young families plan for their future.

Gabriel’s clients are well-educated, busy Gen X and Gen Y professionals. They work high-intensity jobs while juggling the demands of a family. Managing the intricacies of their personal finances is not something they always have time for and this is why they rely on Gabriel’s expertise to manage their finances.

After graduating from the University of Ottawa, he completed the CFEI (Certified Financial Education Instructor) designation, which empowers him to host regular educational seminars open to the public. Participants learn how to start working towards financial independence in a non-pressured and fun environment.
