Board of Directors

Knowledge First Foundation and Knowledge First Financial each have an independent Board of Directors. The Boards are responsible for guidance and oversight, to ensure our activities and operations are carried out with the highest degree of integrity, transparency and accountability for our customers.
 
Each director brings valuable knowledge, skills and experience needed to fulfill our mission to encourage and assist Canadian families to obtain a post-secondary education through peace-of-mind education savings. The Boards meet regularly to oversee the administration of the plans offered by Knowledge First Financial.
