During the month of November, financial services organizations throughout Canada will be participating in Financial Literacy month. Created by the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (Agency), the goal of this initiative is to share information that will help Canadians achieve their financial goals. This can include managing debt, saving for the future, and understanding their rights and responsibilities.
This year the Agency has a national strategy, “A 5-year plan to create a more accessible, inclusive, and effective financial literacy ecosystem for all Canadians”. Titled, Make Change that Counts, the Government of Canada’s vision is for “A Canada where everyone can build financial resilience in an increasingly digital world”. To support this initiative, Equitable Life® will be posting articles on Equitable’s® Blog and sharing relevant information on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Feel free to share our content with your followers.
