Financial Literacy Programming

We take an active role in the area of financial literacy education to ensure that our members and community are empowered with the knowledge and tools they need to lead financially healthy lives. 

CUA delivers the following financial education programs within the community:

  • Economics for Success (Grade 9) - Through a partnership with Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia, CUA delivers Economics for Success programs to educate Grade 9s about financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship through experiential, hands-on learning.
