November is a significant month for those in the financial help services sector—it's Financial Literacy Month, a time to boost financial know-how and resilience. Initiated by the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) as part of their National Financial Literacy Strategy 2021-2026, organizations from various sectors amp up their financial literacy efforts for individuals and families. The goal is simple: empower Canadians to handle their money wisely, save for the future, and fully understand their financial and consumer rights.
This year's focus is "Managing Your Money in a Changing World." With more of us juggling debt and living paycheck to paycheck, it's crucial to have a solid support system during these challenging times. Canadians require reliable financial resources and tools to navigate today's constantly evolving financial landscape. Equipped with the right tools, people can craft a plan to tackle their debt and work towards their financial goals.
Together with the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC), Prosper Canada is on a mission to empower Canadians with financial know-how. Below are some key resources we have promoted throughout the month to reflect this year’s Financial Literacy Month themes.
Week one: Feel the pulse of your financial health
Week two: Debt check-up
Week three: Navigating financial emergencies
Week four: Optimize your financial health
Week five: Safeguard your financial rights
