Financial Literacy Workshop for the U of T Family Housing Office

A guide to accompany the workshop held on January 27, 2023


This guide accompanies a workshop that introduces students to financial literacy. A copy of the presentation used in the workshop will be uploaded below after the session.

This guide and workshop is designed to support these learning outcomes:

  • Students will be able to define financial literacy
  • Students will be able to assess their own level of financial literacy and identify knowledge gaps
  • Students will be able to describe and use Web-based financial financial literacy resources

While it will highlight five basic, simple strategies students can use to take charge of their finances, the focus of the workshop and guide is on providing information resources that students can use to develop their own skills and knowledge in this area. 

The workshop and guide are NOT intended to:

  • provide investment or financial advice,
  • recommend specific financial products or services, or
  • function as a substitute for professional advice, such as that provided by a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) or Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA)

Participants are encouraged to share their own experiences and recommend tools or resources. We can all learn from one another!
