Financial Literacy Month (Canada)

November 1, 2021 - November 30, 2021

from the Government of Canada website:

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.

During Financial Literacy Month, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) engages with Canadians and works together with organizations from the private, public, and non-profit sectors to help strengthen the financial literacy of individuals and families.

Throughout the month, organizations from across the country are encouraged to host events and share resources aimed at helping Canadians understand their finances and empowering them to:

  • manage their money and debt wisely
  • save for the future
  • understand their financial rights and responsibilities

​​A complete list of financial literacy events and res​ources offered by Canadian organizations is available in the Canadian Financial Literacy Database​.​

Information provided has been aimed at both students and adults.  In addition to the posted resources, students can look at the following on the website this month:
