Roundtable Series- Financial Literacy for Millennials: From Basement to Boardroom

When: Monday, June 26, 2017 - 10:00 - Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - 13:00

The Public Policy Forum, in collaboration with the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, would like to invite you to a roundtable discussion series as part of the Financial Literacy for Millennials: From Basement to Boardroom project.

Millennials are in a far more fragile situation than the generations ahead of them, and likely to remain so. Many millennials find themselves either trapped in low-paid jobs or zig-zagging between jobs in a way that makes it difficult to focus on long-term financial goals. They are burdened by more student and credit-card debt than their parents and grandparents were.

Through this project, the PPF and its partners seek to identify ways to improve the retirement and savings financial literacy of millennials while recognizing the realities and impacts of the times such as high levels of student debt, precarious employment, housing prices and much more. Results from these roundtables and other components of this project will be presented at the National Financial Literacy Conference in November 2017.
