Financial Literacy in Canada
Canada's National Task Force on Financial Literacy
The importance of enhancing Canadians’ financial literacy and providing them with financial literacy educational resources has emerged as a relevant topic across the country.
One of the most significant national initiatives on financial literacy was the Government of Canada’s National Task Force on Financial Literacy, which was appointed in June 2009. The Task Force defined financial literacy as “having the knowledge, skills and confidence to make responsible financial decisions” (Canadians and Their Money: Building a brighter financial future
, Report of Recommendations on Financial Literacy
, Task Force on Financial Literacy, December 2010).
