The Metis Nation of Ontario (MNO) is pleased to offer the Financial Literacy Program. As the Program is new and in the early stages of development resources specific to improving financial literacy are being gathered and created while processes for client intake, client referral, and client tracking are being developed. The Financial Literacy Coordinators within the MNO are front line client facing service providers that can provide the necessary financial literacy support to assist clients in developing the skills needed to deal with and resolve identified financial challenges. These services can be provided in one-on-one, small group, large group, and/or virtual formats. These services can also be presented in the form of newly created or existing materials or virtual resources.

The goal of the Financial Literacy Program is to improve the overall financial literacy and well being of Métis individuals, families, and the Métis Nation as a whole. By increasing overall financial literacy, we hope to empower members of the Métis Nation to make sound financial decisions independently and achieve a greater sense of security and success in their financial undertakings. Interested in learning more about budgeting, saving money, or what a credit score is? Do you know how to protect yourself from financial fraud? Are you looking to buy your first time home or save for retirement? The Financial Literacy Program offers information about these topics in a variety of formats including information booklets, flyers, and worksheets.
