Find your financial balance
Managing your finances means finding the right balance. Inflation and higher interest rates signal that you may need to adjust your budget to find the right balance between daily spending and paying down debt. The right balance will depend on your financial situation and goals.
This Financial Literacy Month, learn about good versus bad debt and how to manage your money in a changing world.
ESIC is partnering with the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC), the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), and the Financial and Consumers Services Commission of New Brunswick (FCNB) to promote financial literacy for Canadians of all ages.
About Financial Literacy Month
November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada. During Financial Literacy Month, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada engages with Canadians and works together with organizations across the country to help strengthen the financial literacy of individuals and families.
This year, our aim is to encourage Canadian financial consumers to manage their debt, one of the key consumer building blocks (behaviours) identified in the National Financial Literacy Strategy that leads to greater financial resilience.
Throughout the month, messages will focus the following sub-themes:
- Week 1 (November 1 to 5): Find Your Financial Balance
- Week 2 (November 6 to 12): Manage your debt
- Week 3 (November 13 to 19): Plan for the future
- Week 4 (November 20 to 26): Borrow Money Wisely
- Week 5 (November 27 to 30): Know your rights
