More than ever, your future depends on financial literacy.

Various economic studies indicate that many African descent communities are lagging in financial literacy compared to their White counterparts. The result of the economic disparity is due to Black people’s constant run-ins with anti-Black racism. Race-based discrimination is rampant in many financial institutions, which complicates how Black people receive services. The unpleasant service takes away from Black people's ability to increase their literacy on finances.

On Tuesday, October 5th the Afro-Caribbean Mentorship Program (ACMP), in partnership with the Royal Bank of Canada, will be hosting its 4th annual Financial Literacy event, entitled How to Manage Your Money. This event will provide valuable information to students to prepare them to handle their finances both during and after university. The “How to Manage Your Money” will be offering a hands-on and interactive approach to financial literacy. Attendees will be given the opportunity to interact with RBC financial advisers to answer any questions they may have about managing their money.

Due to the Covid-19, this year, ACMP and the Royal Bank of Canada will be holding a FREE in-person event (limited capacity) while simultaneously streaming an interactive Financial Literacy webinar via Zoom to accommodate a broader audience.
