On September 22, 2016 Visa Canada and Toronto Public Library announced they are teaming up to offer financial literacy education to Toronto’s youth, beginning with the distribution of a new educational comic book that teaches readers of all ages about personal finance. Created by Marvel Custom Solutions, the new comic, Guardians of the Galaxy: Rocket’s Powerful Plan, combines Marvel’s iconic Super Heroes with Visa’s financial literacy expertise to introduce readers to fundamental money management concepts. Toronto Public Library, the busiest urban public library system in the world, will make copies of the new Marvel comic book available free at 100 branches across the city.
“At Visa we believe that financial education can be incredibly effective when the public and private sectors work together,” said Carla Hindman, Head of Financial Education, Visa Canada. “We’re thrilled to join forces with Toronto Public Library to share our new Marvel comic book and other financial education resources with young people across Toronto.”
“We are excited to partner with Visa to help build the financial education of our young people. Starting with this comic, we are hoping to show our youth population that personal finance can be fun,” said Lisa Heggum, Child & Youth Advocate at Toronto Public Library. “We are proud to offer a tool that gives young people a head start on making sound financial decisions.”
Guardians of the Galaxy: Rocket’s Powerful Plan is available through Practical Money Skills, a free financial education program that has been operating in Canada by Visa since 1996. Visa’s support of the Toronto Public Library’s financial education efforts will continue with events and activities scheduled to take place in February 2017, when the Library focuses their youth programming on financial literacy.
“Working on this comic was a unique opportunity that enabled us to introduce core concepts about finance and savings using the Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man in a fun, action-packed story,” said Darren Sanchez, Marvel Custom Solutions Editor.
