​Not sure what to look for in the Canadian Financial Literacy Database? Start by taking the self-assessment quiz to help identify where you need to focus, based on your current knowledge and skills.

The self-assessment quiz will ask you a series of questions to determine your financial needs and will tell you how well you are doing at:

  • Keeping track – organizing and watching your income and expenses to understand where your money goes.
  • Making ends meet – spending less than you bring in so you do not live beyond your means.
  • Planning ahead – setting goals and working towards them.
  • Staying informed – seeking out information and asking questions of trusted sources regarding financial products and services.
  • Choosing products – selecting products and services to meet your current and future financial needs.

Based on your answers, the quiz will generate a link to a filtered list of resources and events in the Canadian Financial Literacy Database. Your results will include a comparison to other Canadians based on their responses to the Canadian Financial Capabilities Survey​.​​
