IFB welcomes news of financial literacy initiatives
IFB is a strong proponent of financial education as a fundamental tool to help Canadians be better informed and protect themselves from potentially fraudulent situations.
We welcome the news that Canada’s first Financial Literacy Leader, Jane Rooney, has been appointed to strengthen these efforts and IFB looks forward to partnering in any future educational initiatives. Ms. Rooney is experienced in domestic and international financial literacy issues.
In a further announcement, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada has made various tools available on its website to mark Talk With Our Kids About Money Day.
Talk with Our Kids About Money Day is an annual event to encourage parents and educators to take the time to discuss with young people the importance of financial literacy, from managing pocket money to knowing about more complex financial tools that they will be using later in life.
