November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada. On this occasion, we can take the opportunity to discover some interesting resources to talk about in class!

In collaboration with its partners, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) has developed several educational programs and materials to help Canadians increase their skills and knowledge in the area of budget management and personal finance. Two are aimed particularly at schools.


The Zone: an educational resource in financial matters

“11-module learning program that gives young people financial knowledge that they can put into practice throughout their lives. This program is for high school students and teachers. Some modules are specially adapted to the curriculum of each province. We can find out more in visiting the presentation page. Note that a online training guide is offered to teachers who would like to familiarize themselves with The Zone and learn how to use it in the classroom.


Make it count: A guide to financial management for young people

"An interactive mentoring program that provides parents and instructors with activities and information to help them make discussions about finances and money management part of their daily routine, turning common situations into educational experiences." It is aimed particularly at children of primary school age as well as their parents, but will undoubtedly be of interest to teachers of this kind as well. To find out more, we can visit the site here.

For other good ideas and resources, one can query the Canadian Financial Literacy Database. For example, you can specify that you want to consult the resources intended for educators and / or parents, in French, and obtain several interesting leads.

And you, what are your essential resources for talking about finances with your students?
