Manulife empowers youth in Quebec and Kitchener-Waterloo to acquire basic financial literacy skills, confidence, and motivation to make the right decisions when it comes to their future financial health. Manulife has partnered with the YMCAs of Cambridge & Kitchener-Waterloo and the YMCAs of Quebec to build a financially empowered generation through these two programs:

  • Money Sense presented by Manulife
  • YMCA Financial Literacy Pathway presented by Manuvie 

New Beginnings

Manulife is a proud supporter of New Beginnings Support Program. This step-by step program is designed to empower disadvantaged women in Toronto with the skills they need to become self-confident, career-oriented, and financially self-sufficient. Manulife helps guide participants through the career planning, financial literacy and budgeting portions of the program.

Wilfrid Laurier

Manulife is proud to support Wilfrid Laurier University’s Lift Off to Higher Education program (previously known as Jumpstart to Higher Education). Lift Off to Higher Education helps students in grade seven and eight identify their interests, build financial literacy skills and introduce them to different paths of education. At an early age, students are expected to make decisions about their post-secondary education. With the help of Manulife, Laurier can provide necessary information and opportunities for students to better set and achieve their goals for the future.
