MEDIAPLANET – Why Financial Literacy Is a Touchdown

Executive Director, CFL Players’ Association

In professional football, you need a game plan to succeed.  You need to know what you’re up against, your strengths, and your vulnerabilities. But most of all, you need to know how to deal with whatever comes at you. Without that game plan, your prospects on the field are not going to be good.

The same holds true when it comes to managing your finances. That’s why the Canadian Football League Players’ Association (CFLPA) is throwing its weight behind the efforts of the Enriched Academy to build awareness and confidence, and, more importantly, support across the entire country for improvements in financial literacy. Every Canadian has a stake in improving financial literacy, whether that’s for themselves, their families, or the communities in which they live.

Enriched Academy is a financial education and awareness company that provides important assistance to CFL players in managing their finances while offering career guidance. Our members not only benefit from this service, they also strengthen their financial literacy in the process — something that has long-term and lasting benefits.
