This video, developed by OSCA, is composed of 3 main financial literacy topics:  planning, budgeting, and resources. High school students discuss their perspectives on the importance of developing financial literacy skills as they move towards post secondary plans in their chosen pathway. A parent and a graduate student also share their perspectives. The students discuss their plans with experts from several pathways, including university, college and apprenticeship. They also speak to financial planners and a counsellor to gain valuable insight.
