You have no worries about any of that with the financial guidance that’s available through the Toronto Public Library (TPL).  The library offers free financial advice through an army of experts well trained in personal money management – and none of them has an agenda.

Through free lectures and seminars, knowledgeable speakers address issues about personal finance at all 99 branches of the library throughout Toronto.  The experts talk about everything from monthly budgeting and tracking spending, to long-term financial planning, and much more.

Part of this army includes certified credit counsellors from Credit Canada Debt Solutions. We have been working to improve financial literacy among Canadians for almost 50 years. We are happy to be part of this community effort and will continue leading the charge.

More people should consider the library when they think about financial literacy or starting a business.  Having a TPL card gives you access not only to free financial advice, but to a lot of special business information like business magazines, annual reports, online databases, videos and reports.  Information like this is crucial and essential in today’s business environment.
