ABORIGINAL FINANCIAL EMPOWERMENT
“Aboriginal peoples have a rich economic history. However, the impacts of colonization have denied many Aboriginal peoples access to this history and have also made them vulnerable to predatory lending and other forms of exploitation, economic and otherwise,” says Dr. Bettina Schneider, program facilitator.
"We have developed financial literacy curriculum that incorporates Aboriginal worldviews and perspectives in order to help eliminate economic barriers. We believe our campaign provides a culturally-relevant, holistic, multi-pronged financial literacy approach that fosters Aboriginal financial empowerment and confidence."
