Financial Literacy Day

Bloggers supporting Financial Literacy MonthNovember is Financial Literacy Month for Canadians. This national media campaign was spearheaded by Glenn Cooke, of LifeInsuranceCanada.com. Last Thursday on November 15th, thirty-five Canadian bloggers, who took part, published their best financial tip.

As Glenn points out on his Blog For Financial Literacy post, financial literacy is important!

“…financial literacy IS important. Educating Canadians about our finances is one of the greatest things we can do for others both individually, and as a country.  Many Canadians are not preparing financially for their future, many are spending beyond their means and mortgaging their future, and many have not even taken the basic first step of budgeting. On November 15th, we’re going to light up the blogosphere with information with the Blog for Financial Literacy campaign.”

It looks like the Financial Literacy movement was a success!

Here is a list of all the bloggers that participated in the Financial Literacy campaign. Remember each of these bloggers or financial writers, volunteered their time, and took extra care to write the best post for their readers. Be sure to follow them and show your support!

Great idea Glenn, and thanks for organizing this movement! Thanks also to everyone who participated! 🙂

    It’s this kind of initiative that remember us for what purpose the internet exists initially.

    Great job to you DN (and I’ll never forget how you put me on the right way and I thank you for that) and to all the rest of the community!
