The Canadian Securities Institute (CSI), a Moody’s Analytics company, has launched a public awareness campaign in support of Financial Literacy Month. "Through a series of three webinars, we aim to help Canadians gain financial confidence and make better informed financial decisions," said Marie Muldowney, Managing Director of CSI.
The webinar topics include Managing Money and Debt Wisely (November 4), Planning and Saving for the Future (November 17), and Preventing and Protecting Against Fraud and Financial Abuse (November 24).
Financial literacy is essential for people’s financial well-being. "The key to a better financial future involves creating a budget and tracking expenses, especially the small ones that add up over the year," said Jessica Bindra, Financial, Investment & Retirement Planner at RBC.
"Managing through life events—starting a family, buying a home, retiring—requires a solid financial plan. It’s not as complicated as one might think, especially with the tools, information and advice available today," added Carissa Lucreziano, CIBC Vice President, Financial and Investment Advice.
