Financial Literacy Month

Financial Literacy Month is a critical initiative that focuses on an important skill set that can be learned at any age, from young children to seniors. Everyday we are confronted with financial literacy moments where we have to make decisions about how we spend our money whether we are grocery shopping, paying bills, buying necessities, or shopping for things we want. Financial literacy is so important that we celebrate Financial Literacy Month (FLM) every November with games, money tips, online courses, and money challenges, all of which are free.

Financial Literacy Month Canada

The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) started Financial Literacy Month in Canada to help strengthen Canadians’ financial literacy. Every November, the FCAC and financial organizations throughout Canada, such as Money Mentors, work together to encourage Canadians to learn more about their finances.

FLM 2023 with Money Mentors

This Financial Literacy Month, Money Mentors is rallying behind the theme Managing Your Money in a Changing World. Given the rapidly evolving financial landscape, it’s crucial now more than ever to take a proactive approach to monitoring our financial health. This is especially pertinent when navigating the terrain of debt management and repayment. That’s why we’re proud to showcase “Debt Dialogues”, a free live webinar in partnership with ATB; unveil five transformative financial literacy courses for students in grades 10 – 12; and remind Albertans of our long-standing incentive program.
