Canadian results of the OECD PISA 2015 study : the performance of Canadian 15-year-olds in financial literacy : highlights.

“Financial literacy encompasses an important set of life skills for all Canadians. These skills enable citizens to fully participate in modern society, managing their financial well-being knowledgeably and confidently. Many youth make financial decisions for themselves, have their own bank accounts, and have access to on-line payment methods. As youth near the end of their compulsory education, it is important that they have financial literacy to guide their everyday choices and major life decisions. Results from the 2015 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) financial literacy component provide an important baseline measure of the financial literacy level of 15-year-olds in Canada”--Highlights, p. 2.
