My Financial Literacy Selfie
The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada is pleased to announce the winners of the #FLM2014 My Financial Literacy Selfie contest. This year’s contest invited Canadians to show off their financial skills by taking a selfie depicting how they were putting their financial literacy skills to use, or how they were helping to strengthen the financial literacy of others.
