/R E P E A T -- Video B-Roll available via CNW - Canadian families learn how
to "Make it Count"/

TORONTO, Oct. 13 /CNW/ - The following B-Roll is available by Broadcast On-Demand web download:

STORY SUMMARY: Talking with youth about budgeting, debit card use and common sense spending has been made easier with the Canada-wide release of Make it Count, an interactive money mentoring program and information resource from the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA). Launched in conjunction with Investor Education Month in October, the Make it Count program includes a parent's guide, an instructor's guide and an online daily budgeting program that uses everyday situations like errands to engage youth in discussions about money management.

According to a recent survey conducted by the CSA, there is a need for financial skills educational resources that are family-friendly. The survey found that 78 percent of Canadians believe that teaching financial skills is among the most important things a parent can do for their child. And less than half of parents with children 18 or younger have actually taught their children about personal finances and investing.
