For Immediate Release

Financial Literacy Leader invites Canadians and organizations to “count themselves in” #CountMeInCA

November 23, 2015          Ottawa, Ontario          Financial Consumer Agency of Canada

Jane Rooney, Canada’s Financial Literacy Leader, invites Canadians to take part in the fourth week of Financial Literacy Month (FLM) by participating in activities that focus on preventing and protecting against fraud and financial abuse. This is a critical life skill and also one of the areas of focus to strengthen Canadians’ financial literacy.

Seniors are particularly at risk when it comes to fraud as they may require help from others to manage their finances. FLM is a great opportunity to bring awareness on the subject and to get families and caregivers involved.

Among the many events to which Ms. Rooney will participate this week is a seniors’ financial literacy session on November 27, 2015. This session is organized by the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) of Canada in partnership with Caregivers Out of Isolation and the St. John’s Public Library.

For a full list of all FLM 2015 events, see the Canadian Financial Literacy Database.
