November - Financial Literacy Month (FLM)

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 (FCAC), the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), and the Financial and Consumers Services Commission of New Brunswick (FCNB) 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.

FLM 2021

Make change that counts! 

November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada. During Financial Literacy Month, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada engages with Canadians and works together with organizations across the country to help strengthen the financial literacy of individuals and families.

This year, Financial Literacy Month will focus on the renewed National Financial Literacy Strategy, and the importance of building financial resilience in challenging times and a digital economy. The campaign theme Make change that counts! aligns with the theme of the National Strategy and its call to action to make changes to the financial ecosystem to ensure it is accessible, inclusive, and effective for all Canadians.

Throughout the month, messages will focus on the following sub-themes based on the National Strategy’s key building blocks that have been proven to help consumers develop the skills, capacity and behaviours that lead to financial resilience.

  • Week 1 (November 1 to 6): Managing expenses to keep up with bills and credit commitments
  • Week 2 (November 7 to 13): Managing debt to feel in control of your overall debt situation
  • Week 3 (November 14 to 20): Managing savings to prepare for financial shocks and unexpected expenses, and achieve your financial goals
  • Week 4 (November 21 to 30): Navigating the financial marketplace with knowledge and confidence
