National Financial Literacy Conference Releases Report

GIO Canada is always looking to strengthen the conversation surrounding Financial Literacy, so we’re excited to announce the release of the final conference report from the 2014 National Financial Literacy Conference, presented by the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada.

Back in November 2014, GIO Canada participated in the National Financial Literacy Conference and helped to facilitate some of the round-table discussions. This was Canada’s fourth national conference on the topic and brought together close to 300 delegates to engage in discussions on the topic. It was a great success and GIO was proud to be a part of it.

Some conference topics included:

  • Exploring ways to move the dial on financial literacy indicators
  • Preliminary results from the 2nd Canadian Financial Capability Survey
  • Examples of successful collaboration
  • Best practices in program evaluation
  • The launch of a national financial literacy resource
  • Case studies in changing financial behaviour

The conference report summarizes the main themes, ideas and discussion points that emerged in a PDF viewable by clicking here.

We hope that this report will prove thought-provoking and will generate more discussion in the important topic of Financial Literacy.
