November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada

Financial literacy means having the knowledge, skills and confidence to make responsible financial decisions. To raise awareness and promote financial literacy across Canada, the Financial Literacy Action Group (FLAG) has named November "Financial Literacy Month".

Canadian youth today are faced with financial decisions that can affect their lives for many years. To help them gain the financial skills and knowledge that will benefit them throughout their lives, Investors Group has partnered with the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) to produce the "Money and Youth" program which is offered free of charge to Canada's approximately 3,400 high schools, to help young people acquire the tools and understanding needed to undertake economic and financial roles, responsibilities and decisions with confidence and competence.

For more information on the "Money and Youth" program, take a look at the following video, visit the CFEE website or talk to your advisor.
