The free workshops will explain what a budget is and why we should all have one, dispense tips on how to reach financial goals, and share ideas about how to adjust spending habits.

"The sole goal is to empower individuals to make the right financial decisions for themselves," organizers say.

The workshops are being held at the Healing Place at 10045 100 Avenue, next door to the Women's Resource Society.

To learn more and register, visit the society office, or email, or call 250-787-1121.
