Prosper Canada is partnering with five non-profit/charitable organizations nationwide to improve the financial well-being of one million Canadians living on low incomes.
Funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Social Development Partnerships Program, these five partners will be known as Financial Empowerment Champions (FECs) with the aim to expand proven financial empowerment (FE) interventions across the country. The partners include:
- E4C, Edmonton AB
- Family Services of Greater Vancouver, Vancouver BC
- Momentum, Calgary AB
- SEED Winnipeg/Community Financial Counselling Services, Winnipeg MB
- Union des consommateurs, Montréal QC
Prosper Canada will provide each organization with up to $150,000 in funding annually over 5 years and the training, tools and resources they need to measurably improve the financial well-being of 175,000 Canadians living on low incomes in their communities.
