Financial literacy grants

In May 2022, Alberta’s government invested $5 million into financial literacy programming over the next 3 years to ensure students have the financial knowledge for today’s world.

Through an extension to their 2021-22 grant agreements, Enriched Academy will receive $900,000 per year and the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education will receive $500,000 per year over the next 3 years.

The organizations are working with schools to provide students with financial knowledge and training on a variety of topics, including:

  • money management
  • budgeting
  • TFSAs and RRSPs
  • credit
  • student loans
  • saving across the lifespan

Through an amendment to the grant agreement, the organizations expanded their programming from grades 7 to 12 to grades 5 to 12.
