November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Financial Literacy Month. It is also a challenging time for many Canadians who may be struggling financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For this reason, it is important to help Canadians understand their finances. The goal this year is to help Canadians gain financial confidence and make informed financial decisions relevant to their circumstances by equipping them with practical tips and tools. Why is financial literacy important? Strengthening the financial literacy of Canadians is a key pillar of Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC’s) consumer protection mandate. As the financial marketplace grows increasingly complex, it is crucial that Canadians have the knowledge, skills and confidence to make informed decisions about the financial products and services that best meet their needs. Financial literacy is important not only for the financial well-being of individuals, but also for the economy. Understanding the basics about money is as essential today as numeracy and basic literacy.
