2021/22 financial literacy grants

To ensure junior and senior high students have the financial knowledge for today’s world, Alberta’s government is providing grant funding totalling $1 million.

The successful organizations, Enriched Academy and Canadian Foundation for Economic Education, will work with schools to provide financial literacy programming to students starting in fall 2021.

The primary purpose of the conditional grants are to have Grades 7 to 12 students learn more about financial literacy including, but not limited to:

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

School authorities interested in accessing programming and resources should visit Enriched Academy and Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (English or French) to learn how they can take advantage of these financial literacy learning opportunities.

Junior Achievement

A grant renewal of $200,000 for Junior Achievement resources in schools will enhance financial literacy programming for students in grades 3 to 6. This funding will provide students with hands-on, experiential financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship education.
