The Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization, founded in 1974, that works to improve economic, financial, and enterprising capability. CFEE works collaboratively with its funding partners, departments of education, school boards, schools, educators, and teacher associations to develop and provide free, non-commercial programs and resources for teachers and students – developed and reviewed by educators. CFEE also has a range of programs to assist newcomers to Canada as they look to settle and integrate into their new country.

BUILDING FUTURES IN ALBERTA OVERVIEW 

CFEE will be coordinating the Building Futures in Alberta program in English and French for Alberta Education that will be comprised of a variety of activities drawing upon our existing programs, modifying and adapting a number of resources, and creating new resources to support improvements in financial education and financial literacy. For further information about CFEE www.cfee.org

The “Building Futures” (BFIA) project aims support the integration of a basic economic and financial education into the Alberta curriculum in grades 7-12. Resources will support Alberta teachers as they address, and answer the following question: What are the most important areas of financial, economic, and enterprising knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviors in the education of Alberta youth to prepare them for their financial futures and enable youth to achieve and sustain financial health?”  As part of the commitment CFEE has made to Alberta Education, CFEE will provide free copies of the publication “Money and YouthA Guide to Financial Literacy” to CALM teachers and students in Alberta. You can review all the CFEE resources and programs that the BFIA program will make available to teachers and students on the BFIA website at https://cfee.org/program/building-futures-in-alberta/ .

BFIA provides a variety of teaching tools including:
1. Learning Framework - identifies the areas of knowledge skills and behaviours suggested as important for financial literacy.
2. Learning Map suggestions for where financial education can be integrated into Alberta’s school curriculum.
3. Supports for Learning suggestions and resources to support the integration of instruction.
