All Canadians are living in a country driven by a credit system, but many do not know how the system works. Canadians are not taught the importance of credit and the effect it has on important life decisions and our quality of life. In school we learn about Shakespeare and the Pythagorean Theorem, both of which we never if rarely use in Adulthood. Yet the life skills of how to purchase a home, file your taxes and build credit are not taught. Let's call on our various levels of  government and school boards to make this mandatory in secondary schools so Canadians are prepared to enter the credit driven economy they will spend the rest of their life's in. Ask yourself "How much you truly know about our credit system?
