November is Financial Literacy Month! This year’s Financial Literacy Month’s theme is “Take charge of your finances: It pays to know!” It encourages Canadians to take concrete actions to better manage their money and debit, including making a budget, have a savings plan and understanding their rights and responsibilities.

Immigrant Services Calgary is also hosting a Financial Planning 101 workshop at Nicholls Family Library on November 9 to help newcomers learn about Canadian pension systems (please note that the workshop will be delivered in Korean).
