Ontario students to learn more about financial system

TORONTO — Ontario students will soon be able to graduate with a little more knowledge to help them navigate the financial world.

Education Minister Kathleen Wynne has rolled out a plan to introduce financial literacy into the school curriculum Starting in September 2011, Grade 4 to 12 students in Ontario will learn how to use and manage money.

Wynne says in a statement that the global economic challenges of the last year highlight the need for a financially literate population.

A working group will consult with the education and financial sectors on how best to implement the plan.

It will report back to the ministry with its findings by mid-2010.
