November is Financial Literacy Month (FLM) in Canada, and FCAC is proud to play a role in raising awareness and mobilizing organizations across Canada to take part.
Financial literacy means having the knowledge, skills and confidence to make responsible financial decisions.
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.
Participate in the Financial Literacy Month photo contest!
FCAC is hosting a photo contest open to all Canadians. We want to see how you are putting your financial literacy skills to use, or how you are helping to strengthen the financial literacy of others.
