Invest in your Financial Wellness as we invest in your community. Stay up to date with the latest in person and recorded seminars aimed to build your Smart Money knowledge and skills.

Building your Smart Money knowledge is always a good investment

Building strong, resilient communities is at the heart of what we do.

Gulf & Fraser is an active part of communities around the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley and areas of southern British Columbia, including Grand Forks. Our events are designed for every level of experience—in fact, in 2022 alone, we held 100+ personal finance classes for students with Junior Achievement British Columbia (JABC).

Our events are as diverse as the communities we serve—they’re also free and open to everyone. So mark your calendar and invite your friends!


Smart Money Seminars

Take the next step toward financial wellness

Whatever your financial goals, our Smart Money Seminars empower you with the financial literacy and tools you need to take the next right step. Every session is interactive and designed to meet the specific needs of the people attending the session. You’ll explore current, relevant topics with subject matter experts from your local branch, trusted financial literacy instructor Susan Fugman or other special guests. And you can rest easy knowing our presenters are there to provide information, not promote products.

Smart Money Seminars happen regularly at your local branch. Choose a date below to register.
