Tackling financial literacy, one lesson at a time

This year, the Government of Canada announced their commitment to a five-year National Financial Literacy Strategy to “create a more accessible, inclusive, and effective financial literacy ecosystem for all Canadians”. This marks an important step forward to ensuring Canadians are equipped with the tools and resources to build financial resiliency, and Home Trust applauds this initiative, as we believe that informed Canadians can make better decisions for themselves and their families.

As part of November’s Financial Literacy Month, we’re looking back at some of the top viewed financial literacy blog posts we’ve shared over the past couple of years as a reminder that financial literacy is a big part of lifelong learning and can prove invaluable at every stage of your life.
