What is BSFS?
The McGill Black Students Financial Society (BSFS) aims to promote financial literacy and the growth of black-owned businesses in the McGill and greater Montreal community. Through BSFS, students will be able to attend workshops about entrepreneurship, budgeting, intergenerational wealth etc. as well as receive funding for their business ventures through competitions and grant opportunities.
"BSFS was created out of a larger movement to bridge the unspoken gap in financial literacy between those who have historically been expected to generate wealth/financial prosperity and those who have not. Our goal is to make education in this realm as accessible as possible and create pathways for equal opportunity."
