Financial Literacy Participant Handbook: Module 3 – Budgeting (2011)

This is the third part of a nine-module workshop designed to train community workers to deliver financial literacy programs. The workshop, which can be presented over one or two days, was developed by the Canadian Centre for Financial Literacy (CCFL).

Topics covered include sources of income, categories of expenses, keeping records, setting goals, and budget strategies.

The authors present a variety of learning activities based on four scenarios: a single mother on social assistance; a single man earning the minimum wage; a married couple with two children and a single income; and a married couple with two incomes and no children.

The people in each scenario have different financial goals, including saving for a child’s education; buying a car; paying off credit card debt; and preparing for a comfortable retirement.

Other topics covered in the workshop include debt management, consumerism, and tips for saving.

The CCFL is a division of Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI), a non-profit organization that helps low-income earners gain financial independence.
