Media Advisory - Credit Counselling Services of Alberta unveils a new initiative to educate Albertans with proactive money management skills

    A new brand, A new division, and A new office

    CALGARY, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - In our booming economy, Albertans potentially
face a greater burden than ever before on their financial well-being.
Albertans are only saving 5.1% - which is half than the recommended amount by
financial experts. Albertans are now facing an average debt load of $18,000!
    To better service Albertans with proactive money management skills,
Credit Counselling Services of Alberta, better known as CCSA, now offers
various informative seminars and personal money coaching through its Money
Mentors division. "We are very excited to launch Money Mentors as well as our
brand new seminars. They have been developed to serve Albertans who wish to be
proactive rather than reactive about their finances" says Jim Thorne,
Executive Director. The seminars range from mortgages, investing, insurance,
wise use of credit, money personalities and more. Thorne adds that "Money
Mentors strives to empower and educate Albertans with effective money action
plans to maintain sound money management throughout all stages in life."
    Join us at our "Save the Slot-Back Pig" rally where we will showcase our
new brand, our new division and our new office. Refreshments and snacks will
be provided.
