Jane Rooney, Canadian Financial Literacy Leader to Address Economic Club

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 9, 2014) - There is great momentum building in Canada to improve the knowledge, skills and confidence of Canadians to make responsible financial decisions. In April 2014, the Government of Canada appointed Ms. Jane Rooney as Canada's first Financial Literacy Leader to direct the development of a National Strategy.

Hear firsthand about Ms. Rooney's approach to coordinating and collaborating with organizations across Canada on a national strategy to strengthen the financial literacy of Canadians. The development process includes three phases of consultations to seek input from the public and interested organization, which will help ensure the strategy will meet the needs of all Canadians. Get insight into the unique financial needs of priority groups, including Aboriginal peoples, newcomers to Canada and low-income Canadians.

The National Strategy for financial Literacy will be released in 2015. What will be the future of Canada's financial literacy effort and how can we work together to achieve our common goals?
