CPA Canada Financial Literacy Program 

CPA Canada is working to address the growing social problem of financial literacy in Canada. They have developed a program which provides unbiased, functional and clear financial literacy information to the public. 

November is Financial Literacy Month. This year's theme, invest in your financial well-being, encourages Canadians to take control of their finances and reduce financial stress by making a budget, having a savings and debt reduction plan, and understanding financial rights and responsibilities.

The program, delivered by CPA members, is available at no-cost and features over 40 different sessions. These sessions cover a variety of financial literacy topics, including sessions for Canadians at all stages of life, such as:

• Adults
• Seniors 
• New Canadians
• Elementary & high school students
• Post-Secondary students
• Small & medium business owners
• Entrepreneurs
• Not-for-profits
• Remote Communities
   
Each session is designed to provide basic concepts and skills to the audience through presentations, interactive activities and/or case studies. To view the full program brochure, click here.

In Manitoba, over 85 no-cost financial literacy sessions have been held this year in partnership with schools, community centres, libraries and not-for-profit organizations across the province. Some employers have hosted sessions for their staff. 

To celebrate, CPAs in Manitoba are volunteering to put on a series of Financial Literacy sessions, hosted at public libraries around Winnipeg, covering topics important to Manitobans. To register, visit winnipeg.ca/library. You will also find CPAs delivering sessions throughout the province for  students, employees and the business community.
