November is Financial Literacy Month

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 COVD-19 pandemic. 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.

With this in mind, we have pulled together a list of resources and articles that we hope you find interesting and useful! We will also be sending out a blog each week of November that covers a different Financial Concept.

The Government of Canada Financial Literacy Month website has a wealth of tips and tools including a budget planner, information on understanding financial products and services and tips to protect yourself from financial fraud.
