October 30th – November 5th
Financial Literacy Week is a national awareness and engagement campaign that seeks to increase the financial literacy and math skills of Canadians. Two of the nine essential skills are numeracy and critical thinking. Lack of these skills impacts on a person’s daily and work life. It is not just about numbers.
To use numbers in a practical way, individuals need to be able to read and problem solve. Think about how often you use numbers – and how you use them. If you did not have those skills think of the impact! For example, imagine measuring medication, building things, cooking, banking or using money without ability to use numbers!
Literacy for Life is offering courses to help individuals learn about computer use
and numeracy. View course descriptions and register here:
