Canadian Foundation for Economic Education

CFEE was established in 1974 in the belief that it is important for Canadians, and especially young Canadians, to develop the “functional economic capability” to undertake decisions and actions in their economic lives with confidence and competence. CFEE aims to identify, and help impart, the fundamental concepts of economics, enterprise, entrepreneurship, and personal finance that must be factored into the decisions and actions we face in our day-to-day lives.

Partners for Youth – Financial Literacy pilot project

The Counselling Foundation of Canada awarded a two-year grant to Partners for Youth (PFY) in 2011. The mission of PFY is to engage youth in New Brunswick facing challenges and obstacles in their lives to become capable, connected and contributing members of their communities. Partners for Youth achieves its mission through innovative programs and services which promote experiential learning in safe, supportive and rewarding environments, in collaboration with public, private and not for profit partners. Part of the funding is earmarked to support a two-year Financial Literacy pilot designed to help youth-at risk who are enrolled in alternate education sites to learn about budgeting, saving, credit, investing and financial planning issues that are connected to both their educational outcomes and real life situations.
