Financial Literacy in the Classroom

Welcome to Financial Literacy in the Classroom. With the support of your teacher, secondary school students can build and challenge their knowledge of personal finance and wealth management to become confident in their financial security as they navigate through an increasingly complex world of finance.

The University of Waterloo's School of Accounting and Finance, with support and contributions from Waterloo Region business teachers and Genworth Canada, offers resources and activities to enhance your classroom learning and teaching. With these resources, we hope to encourage further discovery of business, finance and accounting topics. When you're ready for more challenge, register for the Financial Literacy Competition, taking place on May 30, 2018, for a chance to test your knowledge and win great prizes!
