About My Money Works Program

My Money Works offers interactive workshops and information on financial literacy to low income and economically disadvantaged persons in our community. Participants explore their relationship with money and learn about things like credit, debt, banking, saving and budgeting. For over a year, we have been travelling across the city of Ottawa to teach our workshops to those who need it most. We have helped over 180 individuals acquire the skills needed to better manage their finances. Our workshops are free, interactive and fun and will teach you some valuable tips!

About the Organization behind My Money Works


We see people from all walks of life come through the front door at The Ottawa Mission. Homelessness can happen to anyone. Some have had many hardships in their lives and others have come from loving families and had successful working lives but find themselves in crisis. Some are suffering from addiction, mental illness – or both – and others are just temporarily lost.

For more than 100 years, The Ottawa Mission has been providing the basic necessities of food, clothing and shelter, and we do so with dignity and compassion. Today, The Mission serves nearly 1,300 meals a day and shelters over 235 people each night. On top of the basic necessities, The Mission now offers life changing programs, like addiction treatment, job training, a learning centre, housing support and medical and dental care. For those with terminal illnesses, we offer care and compassion in our 14 bed Hospice. And for anyone who needs it, our Chaplain offers guidance and a daily Chapel service.

The Ottawa Mission has come a long way since it opened its doors in 1906. With the support of the community we continue to offer hope and meet the changing needs of people who are homeless in Ottawa.
