Each year, from coast to coast we participate in Junior Achievement’s projects
and in-school events that aim to help kids improve their knowledge, skills and confidence in making the best financial choices. Each year more than 226,000 young Canadians experience a Junior Achievement program from over 13,500 committed business mentors, including many from Investment Planning Counsel.
The JA programs - Dollars with Sense and Economics for Success - are delivered in schools by volunteer advisors. And research has shown than over 75% of Junior Achievement’s past participants believe the programs had a significant impact in developing their financial literacy skills –– saving more, borrowing less and doing better financially than the average Canadian.
