Financial Literacy

November is Financial Literacy Month!

In 2017, over 110 free activities were held across Quebec in collaboration with the Quebec Public Library Association (Association des bibliothèques publiques du Québec).

In conjunction with Financial Literacy Month, around fifty volunteer CPAs have shared their knowledge and lead 20 different CPA Canada Financial Literacy sessions that cater to the specific needs of adults, seniors, children, teenagers and entrepreneurs.
