About Us

FinLitMission

Money Mentors is the only Alberta-based, not-for-profit credit counselling agency. Through a number of services, we help families and individuals recover from financial crisis and move forward. From credit counselling and money coaching to retirement planning and community financial literacy, we’re creating a healthier financial future for the entire province.

We believe providing financial education to youth in Alberta will help them become financially responsible adults.
