Financial Literacy Month

Financial literacy means having the knowledge, skills and confidence to make responsible financial decisions. Below you will find resources, information, products and services to help you strengthen your financial literacy. It Pays to Know!

ESIC is partnering with the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada, the Canada Revenue Agency, and the Financial and Consumers Services Commission of New Brunswick to promote financial literacy for Canadians of all ages. Strengthening the financial well-being of Canadians is the vision of the National Strategy for Financial Literacy—Count me in, Canada.

​​Throughout November, organizations and individuals from across the country are invited to participate in events aimed to help Canadians learn how to manage their personal finances successfu​lly.

What is the theme of FLM 2018?​

This year’s theme is "Invest in your financial well-being". The goal is to encourage Canadians to take control of their finances and reduce financial stress by making a budget, having a savings and debt reduction plan, and understanding their financial rights and responsibilities.

Throughout the month, FCAC will feature weekly sub-themes. They will bring attention to the benefits of basic money management practices with more specific weekly focuses. They are:

  • Week 1 (November 1 to 3) - Invest in your financial well-being
  • Week 2 (November 4 to 10) - Have a plan to pay off your debt
  •  Week 3 (November 11 to 17) - Make informed decisions
  •  Week 4 (November 18 to 24) - Start good habits early
  •  Week 5 (November 25 to 30) - Take control of your finances
