Today, the Honourable Mona Fortier, Minister of Middle Class Prosperity and Associate Minister of Finance, and FCAC Commissioner Judith Robertson launched the 10th anniversary of Financial Literacy Month at a virtual event with representatives from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors that share a commitment to enhancing the financial literacy and well-being of Canadians.
Given the financial uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Financial Literacy Month is focused on helping Canadians understand their finances and make informed financial decisions in challenging times. In support of Financial Literacy Month, FCAC is sharing “10 Things you should know during times of financial uncertainty”. Canadians are encouraged to take small steps that will have a big impact, such as keeping track of their money, minimizing their debt, assessing their financial goals, and saving for unexpected expenses. Tips and tools are available to Canadians at Canada.ca/Financial-Literacy-Month.
