Financial Literacy Month

It’s Financial Literacy Month, and the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada is encouraging residents to make a change that counts to help build financial resiliency.

 

Julie Hauser, the senior engagement and outreach officer with the agency, explains money management can be overwhelming for many Canadians, stating finances continue to be the biggest source of stress for people.

 

"Financial Literacy really comes into play every time we make a financial decision or a transaction and just to define financial literacy a little bit includes the skills and capacity to make informed financial decisions as well as actions or behaviours that lead to positive financial outcomes. I think it’s something that is really important for a lot of people even if they may not talk about it being financial literacy"

 

The focus points of the campaign include managing expenses, managing debt, managing savings, and navigating the financial marketplace.
