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.

Students can further challenge themselves by participating in our Financial Literacy Competition for a chance to win great prizes! The Competition takes place twice per year, in December and May. Registration and contest details will be made available:

  • December competition - details will be made available in September
  • May competition - details will be made available in February

The resources and activities below are available to you at any time. Select the appropriate category below to begin exploring.
