Financial Literacy Action Group (FLAG), in collaboration with the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC), announced Wednesday that it is organizing Financial Literacy Month this November.

Financial Literacy Month will raise awareness of the need for financial literacy and encourage Canadians to seek information, programs, and services to help strengthen their financial knowledge.

FLAG and FCAC have launched a new website — — to help inform Canadians about the multiple programs and services offered by many organizations across the country.

The website lists the activities that will be offered by all participating members across Canada in November 2011. Activities range from those for all Canadians, to those especially developed for people with specific needs, such as seniors, youth, students and teachers.

In addition to FLAG members and FCAC, several national, provincial, community-based and not-for-profit organizations will also participate in Financial Literacy Month to raise awareness of the need for financial literacy in Canada and to encourage Canadians to reinforce their financial knowledge.
