Financial Consumer Agency of Canada’s (FCAC) call to action, Canada’s Financial Literacy Strategy 2021-2026, identifies “a 5-year plan to create a more accessible, inclusive, and effective financial literacy ecosystem for all Canadians (FCAC, 2021). In a small group of four, students create and/or adapt a financial literacy tool, seminar, or workshop designed to meet the needs of community members at risk. The final project consists of two parts, a report written explaining the process, decisions, and activities the group underwent in the creation and facilitation of the financial literacy community project and the presentation itself. This assessment represents 45% of the course final grade; 30% for the group written paper, 10% for the workshop group presentation, and 5% for an individual reflection on the practice.
