November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada. Financial literacy is a fundamental skill that is needed at all life’s stages. Enhancing Financial Literacy of all Canadians is an initiative of Canada’s Economic Action Plan.

Youth are faced with many financial decisions everyday.

It is never too early to learn how to effectively manage or save your money and make informed financial decisions. Setting financial goals is important.

Are you a Canadian between the ages of 13 and 19? Are you putting money aside for something special? Tuition? A car? A new video game? The latest fashion-trend must have? Tickets to a concert? 

The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada is looking for a one- to three-minute video showing how you are saving money to achieve your dream.

You can win a 13-inch MacBook Pro, or a 16-GB iPad with Wi-Fi with a $50 iTunes gift card or an 8-GB iPod Touch.

All videos must be submitted by 11:59 pm EST November 30, 2012.

Submit your video today and tell us how financial understanding just adds up!
