Momentum Calgary: Learn, Earn, Save & Thrive with Momentum

Did you know that nearly 1 in 10 Calgarians live below the poverty line (1)? That is where Momentum can help. Momentum is a non-profit organization that is focused on community economic development and helps Calgarians with lower economic backgrounds to increase their individual wealth through financial education programs.

Momentum provides various training opportunities in trades,
money management, and small business training. Example of programs provided:

  • Matched Savings for Adults
  • Entrepreneurship 101
  • Technology Training
  • Owen Hart Home Owners Program

At Momentum, financial wellness is seen through a lens of holistic wellness, recognizing that people need to be well in all areas of their lives in order to achieve financial security.
With this in mind, as part of the May Mental Health Awareness Week (May 2-8,2022), Momentum shared
a series of videos covering financial wellness that are very helpful when working towards overall well-being.
