The following curriculum maps contains a unit plan that was created at the OFSHEEA/ OFS3HLC Summer Workshops 2013 in London/Ottawa/Toronto for the Ministry of Education . The workshops brought together educators across the province to network with one another and share ideas and resources about the newly revised Social Sciences and Humanities curriculum. The time spent working on the unit was very brief and the lessons within the unit plan are just one group’s interpretation of the curriculum expectations. The curriculum map and unit plan are not prescribed. The unit plan is not complete but serves only as a starting point. You are encouraged to network with colleagues to continue to build and enrich the curriculum map for your classes.

TORONTO, ON - Our children spend six hours per day, five days per week, forty weeks per year, fourteen years (including junior and senior kindergarten) in total in our elementary and secondary school system.

Teaching Financial Literacy in Secondary Schools
By: Laura Featherstone, OCT, P.H.Ec
For Immediate Release
In 2011, the Vanier Institute of the Family reported that ‘average Canadian family debt has now hit $100,000. Not only that, the debt-to-income ratio, which measures household debt against income, stands at a record 150%, meaning that for every thousand dollars in after-tax income, Canadian families owe one thousand five hundred dollars.’ In 2010, more Canadian families fell behind on mortgage payments, while credit card delinquency and bankruptcy rates rose. In April 2011, a Stats Canada survey showed that almost one-third of retired Canadians are in debt.
