Financial Literacy

 
The Financial Literacy Theme Team developed eight financial literacy pocket tools in Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec to improve the financial literacy of older low-income Canadian women by helping them: 
 
·        to create a personalized financial plan; 
·        to understand retirement and savings options;
·        to understand income tax;
·        to adopt effective banking practices; 
·        to understand credit and debt management;
·        to optimize pensions and public benefits; 
·        to understand the legal dimensions of financial literacy, such as the power of  
         attorney; and
·        to prevent and intervene in situations of financial abuse
