Financial literacy is not a buzz word or only privy to those in the business world. We all need financial, economic knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviours to secure our financial future and to achieve and sustain financial health!

That said, we have some an awesome FREE financial literacy resources toolkit for you! What youth doesn’t dream of ‘being rich’ some day or solving world peace and hunger? Whether the topic is about basic money and decision making, borrowing money, or using credits, or economic citizenship, students want to know more about it.

Connecting you to our toolkit of financial literacy resources that correlate to financial literacy curriculum outcomes has never been easier! “Building Futures in Alberta BFIA)” resources (available in English and French) will support financial education and financial literacy outcomes for Alberta K-12 students.

Join Deb and Deb to explore a wide range of resources and activities using FREE financial literacy resources.
