Welcome to the BCSC's Planning 10: Finances website

This site helps teachers teach and students learn basic financial life skills. It supports and complements the BCSC's written resource (the Teacher Kit) for the Finances section of BC's Planning 10 high school course. The tools, activities and information on this site will help students complete the Planning 10 course and give them financial knowledge they can use throughout their lives.

  • 88% of Canadians have no financial plan. 1
  • 66% of Canadians aged 18 to 29 say they have a monthly budget, but only 22% say they stick to it. 2
  • Only 20% of Canadian teenagers say they save money every month. 3

Alarming? Yes. Canadians of all ages need help learning how to manage their finances safely and effectively. (Click The Facts for more.) The City, a financial life skills resource for teachers and students, can help. It offers BC teachers and high school students the tools they need to learn sound money management skills.

This website complements the printed Planning 10: Finances binder. Together, the website and binder help students complete the Finances section of BC's Planning 10 high school course.

There's something for everyone on this site:

  • Young people can use the tools and activities to build financial skills and the confidence to use them.
  • Teachers can use the site to support their teaching of the course.
  • Teachers and parents can learn and reinforce key financial knowledge and skills.
