Momentum @ CIES

C.I.E.S believes that strong community partnerships are the best way to have both a meaningful and sustainable impact on the life of immigrants here in Calgary. C.I.E.S. invites guest speakers from different fields in Calgary to give informative presentations to our clients to help them better integrate and assimilate into Canadian society. Organizations like Alberta Health Services, Alberta Works, City of Calgary, Volunteer Calgary, Calgary Police Services, ATB Financial, Bow Valley College, Canada Revenue Agency, Calgary Board of Education, H & R Block, and Mount Royal University just to name a few regularly come to both our NE and SE locations. These guest speakers bring the most updated information about living and working in Canada.

This past week Ko Luu from Momentum paid us a visit to offer our clients a workshop on financial planning in Canada. Central to Momentum's work in community economic development are the principles of the sustainable livelihoods model. Simply put, this model is based on the notion that in order for a person to increase their financial assets and stay resilient, they need to build strength in five different asset areas. Those areas are personal, physical, social, human and financial.

Its organizations like Momentum and people like Ko that make CIES possible. We salute Momentum for their long term support and Ko for providing us with his expert knowledge.
