CIBC delivers financial literacy seminars to educate young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 on a range of financial issues, financial responsibility and tips on how to manage their own finances.

CIBC partners with not-for-profit Junior Achievement, an organization committed to helping students succeed in the global economy. Our team members volunteer their time to support financial literacy in our communities by giving financial literacy workshops to classrooms across Canada throughout the year. CIBC experts bring their professional experiences into the classroom to help students connect program concepts with real-life situations. 

We also invest in community programs that provide financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. Students learn how to create and manage wealth. They develop real-world skills that they can apply to their current lives, such as budgeting, investing and aligning their financial choices with their goals.

The Student Life section of the advice centre focuses on helping students to learn about how to manage their money. This resource centre includes videos on budgeting for student life, paying for school and understanding your credit score. It also includes a long list of articles such as “Getting Smart About Budgets,” “Credit Cards 101,” and “All About Stocks.” 

CIBC Private Wealth offers a series of podcasts as a way to educate the children of their clients, preserve wealth from one generation to the next, and possibly attract the next generation of clients. The podcasts address a number of financial topics, including credit and debt management, saving and investments, prenuptial agreements, mortgages, saving for retirement, and charitable giving.
