afcc_certified_2022_symposium

The 2022 AFCPE Research and Training Symposium continues to be the largest of its kind both in session availability and attendance from Canada and the United States. Leaders, Experts, Practitioners, Organizations, Students and participants from around the world will be joining together to build awareness, skills, and expertise surrounding financial literacy education and counselling.

Since launching Certification in Canada in 2006, we have partnered with AFCPE® in the delivery of our Accredited Financial Counsellor Canada® certification program. Symposium attendees gain new ideas, tools, and resources that they then pass along to their colleagues, their organizations, and their clients - ultimately, enhancing the financial capability of the communities that they serve.

Join us for this global consortium to discuss the latest trends, best practices and skill development for financial empowerment and counselling.

The 2022 Symposium is both in-person and virtual.  If you are unable to travel, you can still attend all Symposium events and sessions virtually!  Select Canadian registration for specific OACCS reduced rates.

A special Thank You to our Canadian Sponsors.  The following organizations funded paid scholarships for Canadian AFCC®s to attend and obtain professional development.  Returning that investment through enhanced skills, tools and abilities to elevate Canadians and their financial well-being.
