Since 2009, November has been recognized by the Government of Canada as Financial Literacy Month (FLM). With the intention of bringing Canadians’ attention to the importance of financial literacy, FLM offers a growing number of events and initiatives each year, revolving around a financial literacy theme. This year, FLM’s theme focuses on the recent National Strategy for Financial Literacy – Count me in, Canada.
Launched in June 2015, the official vision of Count me in, Canada, as stated on the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada’s website, is to strengthen the financial well-being of Canadians and their families by empowering them to manage money and debt wisely, plan and save for the future, and prevent and protect against fraud and financial abuse.
