(TORONTO, ON) – November is Financial Literacy Month and to help Canadians gain a better understanding of money management and financial matters, Consolidated Credit Counseling Services of Canada is hosting as series of free financial seminars all month long.
An initiative sponsored by the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada, Financial Literacy Month is dedicated to strengthening the knowledge, skills and confidence of Canadian consumers so that they may make responsible financial decisions.
“Financially literate, better informed consumers make better financial decisions,” says Jeffrey Schwartz, executive director of Consolidated Credit. “With the average Canadian continuing to pile on concerning levels of debt, we could all use a little boost in our financial education.”
To help provide that boost, the non-profit credit counselling agency will be hosting financial education seminars every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the month of November.
“With topics ranging from Vacation Budgeting and Identity Theft to Holiday Survival and Talking Money with Your Kids, we are offering seminars that appeal to a variety of consumers,” adds Schwartz.
To learn more about the seminars Consolidated Credit will be offering during Financial Literacy Month, you can visit the organization’s website or the Government of Canada’s Financial Literacy Month Calendar of Events.
