What is Financial Literacy Month?
In 2012, the Parliament of Canada proclaimed each November as Financial Literacy Month. The theme this year is “Take charge of your finances!” The goal is to encourage Carleton students to take charge of their finances by making a budget, having a savings and debt management plan and understanding their financial rights and responsibilities.
