What a great way to start day two of the conference with a few fun words from Dr Adele Atkinson, Policy Analyst Financial Affairs, OECD.
“Tell your money where to go, don’t ask it where it went.”
Brian Denysuik is attending the FCAC OECD Conference on Financial Literacy.
Here is a summary of what he’s learned from Day One.
We spent the day hearing update on the current state of financial literacy in Canada with different perspectives from around the world. The workshops were very educational and covered some interesting ways on how social media and technology is being reviewed as delivery channels.
Education in the school systems is going to be a very important delivery channel as the provinces role out their models. The studies on gender and financial education were a key interest as they compared where each gender believes they are at with understanding. Alison Griffiths, Toronto Journalist, financial author and TV host of Maxed Out concluded the day with an energetic presentation.
Looking forward to another day, stay tuned.
