November is Financial Literacy Month (FLM) in Canada. It’s a focal period for events and activities that help Canadians improve their financial literacy, and for showcasing the many resources available to help people reach their financial goals.
Spotlight on collaboration
The theme of FLM 2014, Strengthening Financial Literacy through Collaboration, underlines the importance of coordinating efforts of organizations that offer programs, resources, information and services to help Canadians understand and manage their personal finances. This is also the theme of the National Conference on Financial Literacy, November 6 and 7 in Vancouver.
Showcase your resources and events
The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) is developing a financial literacy resource database that will provide Canadians with a one-stop shop for resources, events, tools and information related to financial literacy.
FCAC will launch the resource database in the fall of 2014.
Canadians can also consult the FLM calendar of events to find financial literacy events offered during November.
To showcase your resources or events in the financial literacy resource database or the FLM calendar of events, submit them for consideration using the resource database input tool.
