CNA Canada Renews Partnerships with Junior Achievement of Canada

Toronto, January 18, 2022 - CNA Canada is proud to announce our renewed partnership with Junior Achievement (JA) of Canada, a global non-profit organization dedicated to educating elementary and high school students about business.


The organization offers programs that focus on work readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship, providing students with the opportunity to learn and grow into future leaders. Together, CNA Canada will be working with JA across Canada to educate Grade 8 students about financial empowerment through the Financial Literacy Program, to become more career ready through the World of Choices Program and reward an outstanding student who has taken part in the JA Central Ontario Company Program with the JA Journey Award.


With CNA Canada volunteers across the country, the JA Financial Literacy Program will enable Grade 8 students to gain a stronger understanding of financial concept and management skills to apply in their own life to succeed in the future. The World of Choices Program will empower Grade 10-12 students to succeed in designing career paths and developing the skills to meet tomorrow’s challenges.


The JA Journey Award, sponsored by CNA Canada, will be presented to the Company Program student who has demonstrated personal growth as a result of their participation in the program. The award is an opportunity for CNA Canada and JA Central Ontario to promote amazing JA stories and celebrate the students’ unique achievements.


“We are grateful for CNA Canada’s continued support of JA programming for youth across the country.” says Jennifer James, Vice President of Programs and Charter Services at JA Canada.  “In the context of a rapidly changing environment it is becoming increasingly important for young people to build career readiness and financial literacy skills. Through their investment in JA programs CNA Canada plays an important role in the future success of young Canadians.”


 “I am delighted to continue our growing partnership with JA Canada. Through supporting our local communities, we continue to make a positive impact, developing a strong and thoughtful generation of young talent,” says Nick Creatura, President & CEO of CNA Canada. CNA has a longstanding tradition of supporting local non-profit organizations to improve the quality of life for individuals in our local communities. Investing in education ensures that future generations are prepared for the jobs of tomorrow. Our investment supports the creation of a strong pipeline of entrepreneurs to create jobs and power our economy.


We continue to take great pride in our commitment to give back to the diverse communities where employees live and work. By focusing our resources, we has the power to make a real difference in the lives of many people.
