The Money Project wins Alberta Consumer Champion Award

On April 8, 2013, The Money Project was awarded an Alberta Consumer Champion Award in the non-profit category for its work towards protecting and empowering young Alberta consumers on financial literacy and money management.

Created by Service Alberta, the Alberta Consumer Champion Awards recognize extraordinary individuals, organizations, businesses and media that demonstrate commitment and innovation in educating Alberta consumers and promoting fairness in the Alberta marketplace.

Thanks to the hard work of the Chartered Accountants Education Foundation of Alberta (CAEF), The Money Project continues to exceed expectations while providing ongoing financial literacy support that will empower young Alberta consumers for years to come.
