About the Jr. EC
The Jr. Economic Club of Canada was created to inspire Canadian youth to become financially literate. We believe that young people across our nation need to understand the basics of finance and personal money management. Technology continues to rapidly disrupt how money moves – colliding financial businesses and innovation, and changing how Canadians learn about and use their money. The global financial crisis still has lingering impacts on financial institutions, businesses and families all over the world. It is more important than ever that we educate and equip our next generation of leaders with the skills and habits to be digitally and financially literate.
Our programming is about empowering young people to be the best they can be. We know that understanding the basics of personal money management is a crucial component to a prosperous and healthy life.
