Financial literacy for new Canadians

Financial literacy for new Canadians

Local Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and School of Business associate faculty member Kathie Ross welcomes the opportunity to new Canadians strengthen their financial skills.

Kathie is presenting a special clinic on June 13 focusing on financial literacy for new Canadians. The session is being held in conjunction with the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada’s (CPA Canada) financial literacy program.

“The overall goal is to assist Canadians in gaining the financial skills, knowledge and confidence required to make the best choices for their circumstances,” said Ross. “Financial literacy requires life-long learning. Through a collective effort, we can make a difference and provide helpful guidance.”

CPA Canada launched the community outreach component of its national program in 2013 with the assistance of its members. The organization also produces financial literacy publications and offers online resources.
