Celebrating 2012 – Planning for More in 2013

On behalf of our team at Investor Education Fund (IEF), I want to share our best wishes for a happy holiday season and a good start to the new year.

For us, 2012 was exciting, positive and productive. Among other things, we accomplished
the following:

I also want to acknowledge IEF’s Masters of Money who continued to write and post helpful and interesting blogs throughout the year, providing you with useful and timely information based on their expertise.

It is your search for “straight answers to your money questions” that makes what we do worthwhile. And it’s the opportunity to build on financial literacy education efforts that
inspire us.

We hope the new year is happy and meaningful for you and that it brings you what you wish for. As for IEF, our wish and pledge list is very focused.

  • We hope to see the expected appointment of the federal financial literacy “czar” made; it will spur progress on a national level
  • We will support the designated months for fraud prevention (March) and financial literacy (November), so we can help Canadians protect themselves from harm and become better
    money managers
  • We will continue to make GetSmarterAboutMoney.ca the best financial and investor education website available to Canadians
  • We will work to build on the number of teachers using InspireFinancialLearning.ca and the
    best-quality financial teaching resources available in Ontario
  • We will continue to be innovative and creative in how we reach Canadians and will seek to maximize value for money in everything we do.

Overall, for 2013, we aim to keep raising the bar when it comes to financial literacy. If you agree with that new year’s pledge, please add your thoughts to the comment field about how we can reach the next level of financial literacy.

That’s my take. What’s yours?

Tom Hamza
President of IEF
