I recently spoke with the Canadian Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, a group of hard-working professionals supporting students across Canada at colleges and universities, about financial fitness in 2021, and today I'll be sharing with you the thoughts I spoke about with them. It was wonderful to hear their perspectives and questions as they continue to look for ways to support students.

Listen in to hear about the financial implications of the pandemic, as well as the impact of the pandemic on the finances of postsecondary students. You will learn how to better support students in their financial fitness journeys, why the pandemic hit women harder than men, and the importance of being mindful of your spending.

Incur as little debt as you can.” - Tracey Bissett
