From humble beginnings to six locations across Alberta, Money Mentors is proud of the work we do in our communities. We help Albertans get out of debt, manage their money, and plan for retirement. We promote financial health throughout the province and invest in Alberta’s youth. Through financial literacy presentations we provide educational resources to schools and help prepare students for the future. We are grateful to be Alberta’s choice.
To be Albertans’ choice for lifelong learning and enhanced financial well-being.
To educate Albertans in personal money management and the wise use of credit, and to provide alternatives for families and individuals facing financial crisis.
Money Mentors is an Alberta-based, non-profit credit counselling agency. Through a number of services, we help families and individuals recover from financial crisis and move forward. From credit counselling and money coaching, to retirement planning and community financial literacy, we’re creating a healthier financial future for the entire province.
As a founding member of Credit Counselling Canada, and the first to be accredited, we’ve helped thousands of Albertans discover financial solutions, become debt free, and ultimately live happier lives.
In 1997, we opened our doors as Credit Counselling Services of Alberta to help Albertans regain control of unmanageable debts. We became the exclusive provider of the Orderly Payment of Debts (OPD) program—managing the program on behalf of the Government of Alberta. Within five short years, Money Mentors was completely self-sufficient with most of our funding coming from agreements set up with creditors seeking payment from clients.
Our debt consolidation services, along with the OPD program, have been very successful, with our clients returning more than $230 million to their creditors. While we’re thrilled with our success, we know there are many more Albertans who need help managing their everyday finances. That need inspired us to develop our Personal Money Coaching, which offers unbiased financial advice.
We have a friendly, qualified, experienced team of personal and family financial experts, including Accredited Financial Counsellors and Professional Home Economists, who are here to help you get the most out of your money.
To educate and strengthen the financial knowledge, skills, and confidence of Albertans.
To impact Albertans of all ages.
Albertans will prosper and gain financial awareness and independence.
To empower youth in Alberta by providing financial education for students K-12 and youth in the community. We believe our school programs will help youth become financially responsible adults.
Our approach is to integrate age appropriate money management topics like spending plans, savings, credit with fun activities, and games ensuring students are engaged. With every subsequent grade level, we build on new money management topics, keeping students continually interested while learning the fundamentals of personal finance. All of our presentations from Kindergarten to Grade 12 are aligned with the Alberta curriculum.
Money Mentors has been the recipient of the Consumer Choice Awards in Credit and Debt Counselling Services in Central, Northern and Southern Alberta and Medicine Hat for ten years and counting! Whether you’re brushing up on your financial skills and education, learning how to manage your money better or paying off your debts, thank you for trusting us on your financial journey. We’re proud to be Albertans’ choice for finding financial freedom!
