Participants should attend both days.
From the Money Matters Website:
"Nearly 50% of Canadians struggle with simple tasks involving math and numbers, which is why ABC Life Literacy Canada has developed Money Matters. The focus of Money Matters is numeracy, money management skills and educational savings opportunities that will help adult learners plan their financial present and future.
Founding Sponsor TD Bank Group brings financial experts into the classroom with more than 5,600 hours of donated employee time as they deliver four, two-hour money management units:
- Unit 1: A Place to Start: Spending Plans
- Unit 2: Banking Basics
- Unit 3: Borrowing Money
- Unit 4: RESPs and Other Ways to Save
Money Matters presents adult learners with information on education savings opportunities with the Government of Canada through an introduction to the Canada Learning Bond and the Canada Education Saving Grant programs."
