This fun and energizing course uses money games and tournaments to help students understand key terms and instruments used for managing money and achieving long term wealth. Money Managers also makes students financially literate and money smart so they’re unlikely to fall for big advertising claims and overpay on fees.

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

  • Level 1 – This fun introduction is designed to look at budget basics covering topics from allowances to savings plans, debt, credit cards, and more. This course empowers students to look at money differently and make informed decisions.
  • Level 2 – Building on the Level 1 foundation, this course introduces interactive group activities and a “net worth” tournament. Students challenge each others’ beliefs around savings, chequing accounts, taxes, bills, and fees.
  • Level 3 – Things get exciting as students continue learning about debt paid at fixed versus variable rates while expanding their learning on savings. Registered accounts, RRSP's, TFSA’s, and RESP’s are introduced, and a financial tournament is played where students accumulate fictitious funds to invest.
  • Level 4 – Our savvy students are now ready to learn about investment instruments used inside registered accounts, GIC’s, Bonds, and Stocks. An app is used to run a stock trading tournament with live results. Students are empowered to manage their fictitious trading accounts.
