Millennial Money: Financial Independence and Well-being for the Next Generation (Report Launch)

Millennials are looking for innovative tools to help them navigate challenges like today’s quickly changing economic environment, student and credit-card debt, low-paying jobs, or zig-zagging from job to job in a way that makes it difficult to succeed in their long-term financial goals.

Part one of our new report brings together key findings on the current state of financial literacy among Canadian millennials – their challenges, barriers, and priorities – from a series of four roundtables organised in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Halifax.

In part two, PPF Fellow Jennifer Robson and Research Assistant Andrée Loucks build on what we heard in the roundtables to explore creative but feasible responses to key financial literacy challenges faced by millennials.

We got highlights of key findings and recommendations from the report, and heard from experts in financial literacy as we brought together a diverse group of leaders from government, communities, education and research, the civic sector, banking and financial organizations.

With thanks to our partner:

Diversity and Inclusion:
The PPF believes that diversity and inclusion are essential ingredients of good policy and a better Canada. We encourage you to include under-represented voices at your table. We’d be pleased to connect you with people who are eager to attend.
