Finances are the leading cause of stress in Canada. 41% of Canadians feel money is their greatest source of stress while it’s cited as the number one concern for citizens in over 20 countries surveyed. The impact of financial stress is felt by the individual, the community, and the economy on a broader level. Credit Counselling Canada is committed to delivering financial literacy education to increase awareness and directly assist indebted individuals in managing their money.
CCC provides valuable insight into financial management to protect the consumer and decrease stress among Canadians. Financial-related stress impacts physical and mental health and can cause an increase in a variety of troubling physical symptoms such as migraines, depression and anxiety. Credit Counselling Canada has reached hundreds of thousands of Canadians to promote financial health and this number continues to grow.
“Credit Counselling Canada is focused on bettering the lives of Canadians,” said Michelle Pommells, CEO of Credit Counselling Canada. “We value more than the numbers, we provide tools and resources intended to help Canadians deal with debt while learning about financial health so they can sleep better at night, decrease stress and understand how to be protected as a consumer. We are excited to share our content with BestLifeRewarded and gain access to their robust network of users across Canada.”
BLRI’s wellness incentive platform, BestLifeRewarded provides health stakeholders with a “plug and play” system to encourage health behaviour change. The first of its kind, BestLifeRewarded combines rewards, evidence-informed behaviour change models and personalized action plans to get and keep people health.
