With the global economic turmoil of the past few years, many Canadians and individuals across the world have been left struggling with their personal finances. Many are having difficulties keeping track of their expenses, making their mortgage payments, reimbursing their credit card debts, building savings for emergencies and planning for their retirement; all the while, struggling to make sense of increasingly complex financial information offered through a banking system that is becoming more and more virtual.
Given these challenges, the momentum to increase financial literacy levels in Canada and across the world is stronger than ever. This is why the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) is proud to be partnering with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to present this global conference on financial literacy. This one-and-a-half-day event will seek to advance and elevate the dialogue on financial education in the Canadian and international arena. It will focus on how organizations can help individuals improve their financial knowledge and the way they manage their personal finances.
The conference panels and workshops will cover the following key issues:
Senior officials and experts from the public, private and voluntary sectors, as well as members of the academic community will be on hand to share their expertise and best practices with delegates.
