The Financial Advisors Association of Canada (a.k.a. Advocis) has launched a new consumer-facing website and podcast called Financial Advice for All, the Toronto-based organization announced Wednesday.
The site is meant to teach financial literacy through “easy-to-use tools and bite-sized information.” It includes a mortgage calculator, interest rates comparisons and a podcast on financial planning. Its launch was timed with the opening week of Canada’s Financial Literacy Month.
“The theme for this FinLit month is establishing financial well-being. This requires a well thought-out financial plan that grows with you,” Greg Pollock, president and CEO of Advocis, says in a statement. “With the launch of Financial Advice for All, we’ve taken a new approach to discussing personal finances. We’re providing consumers with clear information that gets straight to the point. It’s about having a suitable, and realistic overarching plan for your finances. It’s also about developing sound financial habits.”
