Financial literacy across generations
The theme of this third
annual Financial Literacy Month is “Financial Literacy across Generations.” The
Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) has once again partnered
with different organizations to raise awareness about FLM and to encourage all
ages to participate. This year’s FLM puts the focus on learning or brushing up
on the basics of money management at any age and will include events for
Canadians of all ages. “Understanding the basics such as budgeting and saving
as children is the first step,” said Commissioner Tedesco. “Learning how to
manage credit and debt and plan financially provides Canadian youth with the
tools they need to navigate through the financial realities of adulthood.
Ultimately, this will help to ensure that their finances are in good shape as
they enter their retirement years.” http://www.fcac-acfc.gc.ca/eng/about/news/pages/ConsNews-ConsNouv-0.aspx?itemid=241
