President & Founder

Forward Vision Games

Meaghan has a degree in finance and worked as a Senior Equity Trader/Market Maker for major Canadian banks and investment firms for over 7 years on Bay Street. She was a trader during the financial crisis and saw first hand what happens when governments, businesses and financial institutions do not properly manage financial risk. She also realized that the same issue is true with people. They struggle with financial decisions due to a lack of understanding of financial risk.

Meaghan is very passionate about financial capacity skills, the capital markets, and Indigenous issues. She founded and launched Forward Vision Games based on the core belief that the financial world has changed and we need to change how we teach it. Forward Vision Games builds cloud based financial simulation games to teach foundational financial skills to people in an engaging and impactful way. The company on builds financial capacity in Canadians across the country and has a focus on Indigenous people and communities. The first game launched in the fall of 2013 in northern Alberta for upper year high school students. Forward Vision Games is now engaging in and developing partnerships with high schools, post secondary schools as well as entrepreneurship training programs. Meaghan also travels directly to Nations across the country assisting them with their financial capacity and access to capital at the Nation level.
