Companion Animals and Older Adults presented by the Saskatchewan SPCA
Weds Sept 21 10 am Online via ZOOM, FREE

Humans and animals share many things in common- one big factor being that they both experience the aging process in similar ways. This presentation will dive into some of the many considerations that come with being a caregiver for a companion animal as we age into older adulthood. If something happens to me, who will take care of my animal? Can my animal come with me if I have to move? What are the benefits I can experience by having an animal? What benefits can my companion animal gain from me?

10 Steps to Retire Without Debt presented by the Credit Counseling Society
Thurs Oct 27 10:30 am. Online via ZOOM. Cost $10, SCOA members free

Is Freedom 55 still a realistic goal? Perhaps Freedom 65 or 70 is more realistic. The number of Canadians who are retiring with debt has increased to 33% (Statistics Canada). In 2000, only 8% of retirees still had a mortgage; it is now 64%. There are many reasons for this significant increase in debt amongst retirees, but the consequences remain the same – a fixed income needs to service living expenses along with debts. There is another alternative and that is to retire without debt. In the 10 Steps to Retire Without Debt workshop/webinar, you will learn how to: identify sources of income you will have in retirement e.g CPP, OAS, the reasons why more Canadians are retiring with debt, describe why retiring with debt is so challenging and much more.
