Let’s talk about money during November

letter to the editor from Lucie Tedesco - Let’s talk about money during November

To the editor;

This November, let’s talk about money.

Did you know that November is Financial Literacy Month (FLM) in Canada?

This third edition of FLM, with the theme “Financial Literacy across Generations,” is the perfect time to talk about and promote the importance of greater financial literacy in Canada.

To promote events and activities taking place during November, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada offers a calendar of events.

With just a few clicks, organizations can promote the seminars, workshops or any other activity they are planning during FLM 2013, and Canadians can see what’s available in their own city and province.

In addition, through its video contest, the Agency invites Canadians aged 13 to 19 to produce a short video explaining how talking with someone about money helped them achieve a financial goal.
