Ultimately, the goal of implementing a financial literacy program in schools is to create a nation of knowledgeable and responsible citizens. Financially literate Canadians will able to create better plans for their future and retirement and just make better financial decisions in the long run. The government must recognize the huge impact of their citizens’ poor financial knowledge and decision-making on the national economies. So why not make that a priority?
