November is Financial Literacy Month (FLM) in Canada. FCAC is proud to
raise awareness and mobilize organizations across Canada to spread the word
about the importance of financial literacy.
Strengthening Financial Literacy through Collaboration
FLM 2014 exceeded our goals for participation and impact. It started
with an engaging national conference, where FCAC launched our new Canadian
Financial Literacy Database and self-assessment quiz. Businesses and
organizations across the country held over 1,200 events to teach the knowledge, skills and confidence to make
responsible financial decisions. FCAC joined in many FLM events and
consumers’ engagement on social media also broke records. FLMCanada’s Facebook page and #FLM2014 Twitter hashtag have never been more active.
FCAC thanks all
who participated and hosted events in November. Let’s now make it a year-round
effort to raise awareness of the importance of financial literacy.
FCAC is pleased to announce the winners of the #FLM2014 My Financial Literacy Selfie contest. Thank you to all who entered.
