Police Pal Program

The London Police Pal Program began on May 30th, 1990 as a way to help young children cope with physical and emotional trauma. This community initiative provides a plush German Shepherd toy dog to young children who may have experienced, or may be experiencing physical and emotional trauma.  The dog acts as a way to distract and provide comfort to a child while a Police Officer is responding to a call.

Financial Literacy – Each One Teach One

Empowering people to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to confidently manage their personal finances is part of being a good neighbour, and enhancing Canadians’ financial well-being is a shared core value for Canadian credit unions. We’ve invested in our people so they can help develop financial literacy skills in our communities through the Each One, Teach One Program.

Each One, Teach One (EOTO) is an innovative financial literacy program that trains credit union employees to deliver basic financial skills workshops in community settings. Delivered in plain language —in schools, church basements, neighbourhood houses and community centres — the approach of Each One, Teach One is to meet individuals where they are, when they seek training.

The Each One, Teach One financial literacy program provides trained credit union staff with access to 17 financial literacy workshops. Learn more about the Each One Teach One workshops.

If we can support your group by providing a free certified financial literacy volunteer presenter, reach out and let us know!
