How we define financial vulnerability ultimately determines what supports are created and for whom. Is the current definition aimed at helping everyone who needs it?
This webinar explores the conception and redefining of financial vulnerability in Canada based on the research and findings from the book Financial Vulnerability in Canada: The Embedded Experience of Households. These research findings will then be highlighted through discussion of first-hand frontline experiences, with a focus on importance of providing financial help services using a trauma-informed approach.
The webinar speakers are:
- Jerry Buckland (Canadian Mennonite University)
- Brenda Spotton Visano (York University)
- Margaret Yu (Momentum)
This webinar will benefit frontline practitioners supporting those in financially vulnerable situations, as well as those who influence or inform policy decisions.
