The Canadian Centre for Financial Literacy (CCFL) has trained our staff to provide quality basic financial literacy education and supports to our young entrepreneurs. The CCFL is a division of the national charitable organization Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI).

Our goal is to equip people with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to make informed decisions about their money and the best use of financial resources available to them.

The financial literacy training is designed to provide a strong BASIC foundation for participants to build their financial literacy. The workshop provides a wealth of information about money management. By the end of the workshop sessions, our hope is that the participants can connect this material to their own lives, reflect on its meaning, grasp the concepts of money management, and apply them.

The ten modules in the curriculum cover the following topics:
• Our Relationship with Money
• Creating Income & Basics of Taxes
• Budgeting
• Banking and Financial Services
• Savings Tool Basics
•  Credit Basics
• Credit History
• Debt Management
• Consumerism
• Living on

It was a great experience for parents, and it got kids thinking about starting their own business, which they would otherwise not think about at this early age.”  Principals
