The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada has developed a short video to guide you through the Canadian Financial Literacy Database and the financial literacy self-assessment quiz in an engaging way. It provides an overview of how to search for resources and events, and highlights many of the Database’s key features.
Wow, what a game!
Yeah, great game but I just can’t seem to concentrate today.
I bet I know why - you’ve been trying to figure out your budget
and plan for the future since you got married – right?
Yeah, Carole and I have been talking about buying a house and having kids...
I’ve been there. Let me show you something.
I recently discovered the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada website – it has unbiased information that we can trust.
Here are two of their great tools: the Canadian Financial Literacy Database right here and the Financial literacy self-assessment quiz.
The quiz asks you questions about how you manage your money and tests your knowledge level on important stuff like banking, spending, credit!
After about 5 minutes of effort, you’ll get your results - where you are on track and where you might need some help.
You can even see how you measure up compared to other Canadians.
Then PRESTO - it takes you directly to a list of resources in the Canadian Financial Literacy Database!
You can easily sort through hundreds of resources and focus on what’s important to you.
You make some choices and then it quickly updates your results. Do you want to give it a try?
Definitely. Let’s try Resources… Budgeting and Money Management… Parents….Life Event – Family Finances.
Wow, that’s way more resources than I expected.
Hey - an online calculator! Hmmm… here’s another one that looks good too!
So compare them! Check the box beside each resource you like and hit the “Compare” button. See?
Brilliant! The best part is that I don’t need to go to a bunch of different websites.
It would have taken me forever to find this information on my own.
Last week, I even checked something out for Mom and Dad about taxes and retirement.
Such great information, yet it's so easy to use. Okay – ready for the third period? Commercial Narrator: If you’re trying to manage your money for today, or tomorrow,
