Authors: ABC Life Literacy Canada
In the spring of 2011, ABC Life Literacy Canada and TD Bank Group announced that Financial Literacy Week would be marked from October 30 to November 5. It is a national awareness campaign designed to increase the knowledge and confidence level of all Canadians with regard to their financial literacy and numeracy skills.
This document contains ideas for individuals, workplaces, community groups, libraries, and schools to get involved in promoting financial literacy. Among the suggestions are workplace lunch and learn sessions on financial literacy; a math and money games night; and a reading group focused on books dealing with money skills.
The authors have included links to a variety of online resources that can help develop financial literacy.
