BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF

Money can be stressful, so it’s important to realize how normal and natural it is to feel overwhelmed when first navigating a new financial system. It's helpful to be gentle with yourself and find easy ways to calm your nervous system before and after making important financial decisions. Helpful activities include spending time in nature, having a warm shower or bath, making some extra space in your schedule for quiet time, or keeping a journal to write out your feelings. All these tools can support you in feeling calm and in control while navigating your new country and finances.

CONNECT WITH COMMUNITY

It’s always helpful to talk to others that can empathize and share in your experiences. At Conscious Economics, we are here to help you feel supported and make new friends. Sign up to our newsletter for community events and helpful resources.

CREATE SMALL & MEASURABLE GOALS

Building financial confidence is something that happens slowly, by taking small positive steps and rewarding yourself for each important milestone achieved. It's great to start out with a 3 month, 6-month, and 1 year plan to support your financial goals. If you need support, reach out or join the Mindfulness & Money Annual Membership program.

We are proud to partner with Interac, which is one of Canada’s leading and most trusted financial services brands, due in large part to the security features built into its products and services. Interac is a unique Canadian company that enables those with a Canadian bank account to transact digitally using their own money. When you see the Interac logo on your debit card, when you sign-in to your online banking services, or when you’re shopping, you know that your purchases are being managed by an organization dedicated to Canadians and to ensuring people can transact safely and securely using their own money

Canada is known to be safe and friendly, but we get a lot of fake phone calls, emails, and text messages. Don’t be surprised if the message is in your home language either. Here are some tips that you can follow to feel more confident when it comes to protecting yourself from falling victim to fraud/ scams in Canada.

WHAT DOES INTERAC OFFER TO HELP ME STAY IN CONTROL OF MY MONEY?

Products like Interac Debit and Interac e-Transfer allow Canadians to withdraw, pay with and move their own money anytime, anywhere. These products are accessed through your Canadian financial institution (we’re connected to over 300 of them!), which means you can rely on them no matter who you’re transacting with, and you can rest assured that they’re backed by bank grade security.

PROTECTING YOURSELF AS YOU NAVIGATE YOUR NEW LIFE IN CANADA

Interac has a long history of helping Canadians stay secure when transacting in-store and online, through world-class privacy, fraud mitigation, and expertise in governance and verification solutions. Interac arms Canadians with the information they need to spot, avoid, and report fraud and enable Canadians to transact digitally with confidence. 

1. STOP:

Don’t feel pressured into taking action if you receive a request for personal information that you weren’t expecting – make it a habit to stop and think rather than quickly respond. Our surveys show that phone calls, emails and texts asking for personal information are the most prevalent. With so much of Canadians’ lives now online, combined with feeling isolated and vulnerable in a new country without a strong support network, it’s particularly important to take a moment to stop, breathe, think, and follow your instincts.

2. SCRUTINIZE:

Assess the situation and look for the telltale signs of a scam. Make use of online resources like the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre to stay up to date on scams and how to spot them.

3. SPEAK UP:

Confirm the validity and report any concerns. Recognize that you are not alone. There are resources that can help you recognize and respond to fraud attempts. If you suspect fraud, contact the sender of the communication through a different channel to verify it’s real. If you’ve already provided sensitive information, immediately contact your financial service provider and report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.

4. PRACTICE GOOD DIGITAL HYGIENE:

Be smart with your personal data. Whether it’s using a public Wi-Fi network to access online banking or refusing to change your passwords for fear of forgetting them, poor digital hygiene will often leave you in a mess. Be mindful about the networks you use and protect personal data by not disclosing too much public information on open social media platforms.

5. BLOCK SENDER:

Stop untrusted scammers in their tracks. If you experience unsolicited calls, emails, texts, or social media requests, don’t just ignore them, block them. This is an important way to stay protected and a useful tool to separate the good from the scam.
