We asked the experts: "What personal finance advice would you give to teenagers?"
"Financial literacy provides a set of skills and tools that everyone will require over their entire lifetime. Too often we take the teaching of financial literacy for granted. Therefore, I am thrilled to see Foundations of Finance taking an active role in helping ensure Canadian youth are exposed to personal finance skills."
President & CEO at SHAD Canada
"In my speeches, I always talk about 'Keeping Score': watching your finances, doing your books, being cautious. I needed $150,000 to invent the Fox 40, and nobody believed that a pealess whistle would sell. So, I was careful with finances, which led to my invention. Foundations of Finance teaches students the important principles of 'Keeping Score' and managing finances."
Founder & CEO of Fox 40 International, CEO & Chairman of Fluke Transportations, Order of Canada
Couldn't make it in 2019? Don't worry.
In 2019, students from all over Hamilton and the GTA attended Foundations of Finance to learn, network, and enjoy lunch - all for FREE!
Through interactive workshops, engaging keynote speakers, and case activities, students learned how to take control of their financial future. Even if you couldn't attend, we've gathered a collection of financial literacy resources that you might find useful! These resources include tools, programs, information sources, and more.
