CFA MONTRÉAL and JA QUÉBEC: joining forces to promote youth financial education

CFA Montréal has partnered with JA Québec to support the funding of its programs on business introduction and financial literacy for young Quebecers from Secondary 4 and 5 up to the college level."

Many of today’s youth feel uneasy about investing and lack essential money management skills. In a recent WelcomeSpaces study, 40% of youth in Quebec were unable to answer basic questions about everyday financial issues.

CFA Montréal invites the entire financial community to join its efforts to raise funds to concretely improve the financial literacy of Quebec's youth through a brand-new charitable initiative focused on shared interests and values: youth development, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), and financial education.
