What does it mean to be financially fit as a Westoba member?
It means you know how to make your money work for you, even if you only have a little bit to work with. It’s about being able to have the money you need, when you need it, while living in a way that doesn’t exceed your income earned or putting a financial strain on your savings goals.
As Henry Neufeld, Director of Member Experience, says, “If the past two years was any indication, no matter how much we might plan, things can work differently than we intended. However, there are financial opportunities that are less challenging to navigate if you have safety nets in place. We want to boost your financial fitness while reducing those expected detours and to protect your future financial health.”
As your financial institution, it’s our job to advise you about making good choices that align with your financial priorities. With Westoba’s Financial Fitness, we can provide you with the knowledge you need to cope with all the expenses and live your life the way you want – without the stress!

Financial Fitness Checkup
To stay on top of your health, you’ll most likely visit your doctor once a year. There’s something else you should be scheduling yourself in annually: A Financial Fitness Checkup.
This gives you the chance to investigate how you’ve done financially over the past 12 months and to review whether you’re still heading in the right direction when it comes to managing your finances. If it’s about time you spoke to someone about your finances, book a conversation with one of our financial consultants today.
We know financial fitness is different for everyone. The resources above are tools to help you get started on your financial journey or guide you to stay on the right path. Life plans can change; with them, so can your financial needs.
