This document outlines a submission to the Government of Canada’s Task Force on Financial Literacy made by Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI), a charitable organization that works with community groups nationwide to help low-income people become self-sufficient through financial literacy; savings and asset building; and entrepreneurship.
SEDI’s recommendations include recognizing that local community groups have the skills to provide financial literacy resources to vulnerable populations; fostering partnerships between government and the voluntary sector to identify at-risk adult target groups; and developing marketing strategies to bring the message about financial literacy to low-income Canadians.
The task force was established in 2009 and published its final report in February 2011. The report can be found at http://library.nald.ca/item/9167.
