The Bons comptes, bons amis! Program is a collection of books and teaching guides for students aged 9 to 12 that address financial literacy and citizenship education to foster personal and community success while creating a more sustainable world. This initiative will enable schools, teachers, and parents to provide young people with the tools to understand financial concepts in a fun and educational way, helping to forge informed and responsible citizens.
