The month of November is fast approaching which means that everyone has a chance to participate in Canada’s 5th Financial Literary Month. Established by the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC), the aim of Financial Literacy Month (#FLM2015) is to engage Canadians in a conversation about better spending and educate them to make informed and responsible decisions with their money.
Many Canadians – especially Millennials (such as me) – don’t know how to have a good balance between spending and saving and evidently make irresponsible purchase decisions. This is why Financial Literacy Month (#FLM2015) is the perfect opportunity to take control of your finances and educate yourself in how to spend better.
Throughout the month, the FCAC will be collaborating with organizations from across Canada to help Canadians learn more about financial literacy. More importantly, through various resources provided by FCAC partners, Canadians will be able to get insight on better investing, budgeting, financial planning, and protection against fraud.
This year, FCAC has picked the theme “Count me in, Canada” which focuses on the involvement of Canadians from private, public, and corporate sectors to join in on the conversation about financial literacy and educate Canadians about its importance. You can make a difference by joining in on the conversation with the hashtags #FLM2015 and #CountMeInCA on your social media channels.
