Congratulations! You found the course that made Extra Ed what it is today.

This fun and energizing course will build your understanding of all key terms and instruments used for managing money and achieving long term wealth. Financial Literacy will also make you money literate and money smart so you will be unlikely to fall for advertising claims and overpay on fees ever again.

There are 4 Levels offered. Each level builds upon the other.

  • Level 1 – Our introduction looks at budget basics covering topics from savings plans, expenses, debt, and credit cards. This course empowers you to look at money differently and make more informed choices and decisions.
  • Level 2 – Building on the Level 1 foundation, Level 2 introduces a “net worth” tournament designed to challenge your beliefs around savings, chequing accounts, taxes, bills, and fees.
  • Level 3 – This Level delves deeper into debt paid at fixed versus variable rates while expanding learning on savings. Registered accounts, RRSP's, TFSA’s, and RESP’s are introduced, and a financial tournament is played where investments and trades are simulated.
  • Level 4 – The final Level covers investment instruments used inside registered accounts such as GIC’s, Bonds, and Stocks. Another stock trading simulation is run with higher stakes.
