Financial Literacy Month

Littératie financière

Take control of your finances!

Throughout November, the CPA profession has teamed up with the Quebec Public Library Association to rollout CPA Canada’s Financial Literacy Program. The goal? Help Quebecers of all ages and financial circumstances acquire basic financial knowledge.

What is financial literacy?

Financial literacy is having the knowledge, skills and confidence to understand financial information and make informed decisions so you can: 

  • save;
  • better manage your money;
  • plan for the future; and
  • avoid fraud.

sessions offered throughout Quebec

Some 50 workshops on various topics will be offered for free in Quebec’s public libraries by CPA volunteers. Topics will include healthy financial management habits, fraud protection for seniors and teaching kids about money.
