CIES Expansion Continues With First Calgary Financial Grant for Entrepreneurial Financial Literacy Project

First Calgary Financial has long been a champion of community investment here in Calgary and CIES is pleased to announce their support and funding for our Breaking the Economic Barriers for Immigrant and Low Income Earning Calgarians project. The overall goal of the project is to improve the standard of living of immigrants / low income earning Canadians in Calgary, by removing barriers to entrepreneurial success.

Goals aside, the purpose of the project is to equip immigrants with knowledge and skill to start a new business by providing adequate information and offer financial literacy education offered by different financial institutions in the city. Improving their knowledge and understanding about the Banking System / New to Canada Banking Program, graduates will be equipped with entrepreneurial skills and knowledge required to start small businesses on their own. CIES will organize financial literacy education in both Orientation on Banking Services for Newcomers to Canada and Entrepreneurship Development Training.  

CIES would like to extend its heartfelt thanks to First Calgary Financial for their support and for more information on the project give us a call at 403-291-0002.
