Indigenous Financial Wellness: Managing your money booklet

13 September 2017
Bright, beautiful, interactive and simple to use, Managing your money, offers a series of seven worksheets to help Indigenous individuals and families to set and work towards money goals. Each financial topic and activity features artwork by Simon Brascoupé paired with a teaching from the animal world that draws on their skills, strengths and experiences in managing resources.
 
The land is our teacher. It teaches us about saving, sustainability and security. At creation animals, birds and fish were asked what they could teach humans. The animal world said humans can learn from our values, character and behaviour. In this booklet the animals will teach you about managing your money.

The booklet is designed to facilitate one-on-one conversations or to be used in financial education workshops. We are excited to get feedback on the booklet from our partners and individuals who use Managing your money. You can find the worksheets in the Resources section at www.prospercanada.org along with information on how to use the booklet.
 
The booklet was developed in partnership with AFOA Canada, as part of the First Nations Financial Wellness Project funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
