5:30pm - Meet & Greet

6:30pm - Tim Nash, Good Investing:  Financing Your Sustainable Life 

This talk covers basic financial literacy in a way that is engaging and entertaining. Tim takes the participant on a journey to achieving personal financial sustainability. We discuss budgeting for financial goals, investment basics, and how to avoid common financial pitfalls. Examples include the need for an emergency savings account and the difference between stocks & bonds. Ethical decision-making is woven throughout the journey, as participants learn about impact options like credit unions and community bonds. This talk is perfect for an audience that wants to level up their financial knowledge, and take steps to align their money with their values.

7.00pm - Laura McGrath, Shift Action: Climate and Pensions

When it comes to aligning their investments with their values, few people think about the power of their pension. Laura will walk us through why Canada's $2 trillion public pension behemoths are critical actors that need to be on-side with climate action. Whether you have a workplace pension or not, all Canadians working outside Quebec pay into the Canada Pension Plan, so there's something for everyone to think about when it comes to our public retirement savings. We'll discover why the climate crisis presents an existential risks to pension funds, how Canadian pension funds are responding, and what individuals can do to protect their pension and the planet.

8pm: Debrief and network
