Community Involvement

We care about the Communities we serve

4 Pillars Consulting Group is a dynamic Canadian-owned company that serves the communities we live in. As part of our ongoing involvement to give back to the community we work with a number of non profit organizations to share our wealth of knowledge and experience. Financial Literacy workshops are educating Canadians to make informed decisions that directly affect their long term financial stability.

EmpowerU Initiative

EmpowerU is one of the most comprehensive financial literacy initiatives in Canada. In 2009, 4 Pillars started working with the City of Edmonton to build a new model for funding financial literacy programs operated by non profit organizations. It has evolved to become a Alberta Asset Building Collaborative initiative now in its 3rd year of operation. It is a collaberative approach that combines research, financial literacy capacity, and a matched savings to deliver an outstanding financial literace experience. If you are interested in learning more or want to implement a similar program into your community please email Troy Tisserand directly at troyt@4pillars.ca.

4 Pillars Consulting is proud to be involved in many Financial Literacy initiatives that support non profit organizations to reduce poverty, create better opportunities for our children, and support our communities. Here is a list of some of the organizations we partner with to deliver financial literacy. We have provided links to their websites if you want to learn more information on them.
