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 2017?​

This year’s FLM theme "Take charge of your finances: It pays to know!" encourages Canadians to take concrete actions to better manage their money and debt, including making a budget, having a savings plan and understanding their financial rights and responsibilities.

Throughout the month, FCAC will feature weekly sub-themes that bring attention to the benefits of basic money management practices at different stages of life and encourage Canadians to reduce debt and save for the future. They are:

  •  Week 1 (November 1-4) - Achieve financial well-being
  • Week 2 (November 5-11) - Live within your means
  • Week 3 (November 12-18) - Manage money for student life
  • Week 4 (November 19-25) - Teach children about money
  • Week 5 (November 26-30) - Know your financial rights and responsibilities
