Financial Literacy Participant Handbook: Module 5 – Saving (2011)

This document is part of a nine-module workshop, developed by the Canadian Centre for Financial Literacy (CCFL) to train front-line workers in community organizations to deliver financial literacy programs. Other modules in the workshop deal with such topics as the basics of credit; banking and financial services; and budgeting.

The authors provide information about a wide range of savings tools like bank accounts, mutual funds, Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs), Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs), and Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs).

As well, they offer learning activities that focus on setting savings goals; distinguishing between needs and wants; and finding money to save by trimming expenses.

The CCFL is a division of Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI), which was established in 1986 to help low-income earners gain financial independence through financial literacy, asset building, and entrepreneurship.
