Celebrating six years of educating Canadians about personal finance, the CPFC is a two-day conference for personal finance bloggers, journalists, and anyone who has a passion for learning more about money.

Held on November 4-5 in Toronto at the Design Exchange, the conference features a robust series of speakers, including:

  • Rubina Ahmed-Haq – Personal Finance Journalist
  • Michael Katchen – WealthSimple
  • Ellen Roseman – Author and Personal Finance Educator

  • Lauren McPhillips – This Renegade Love
  • Kristen Gale – The Ten Spot

With a line up like that there will definitely be a lot to learn and some great conversations going on.
