Terry Campbell, President of the CBA, has been named to the National Steering Committee on Financial Literacy for a second term. The Committee’s mandate is to implement the National Strategy on Financial Literacy. The Strategy is a call to action for all Canadians to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to make good financial decisions. The banking industry supports the Strategy’s goals.
The National Steering Committee on Financial Literacy includes representation from the public, private and non-profit sectors. It supports Canada’s Financial Literacy Leader in fostering collaboration and engagement among stakeholders. Mr. Campbell also sat on the inaugural term of the Committee which was established in July 2014.
New committee members were selected from 120 applicants, each chosen on merit and representing an organization from a broad range of sectors and regions across Canada.
