Financial Literacy for Immigrants

In their early years in Canada, newcomers have to make many complex decisions about their financial well-being while still learning to navigate Canada’s financial, legal, and tax systems.

Financial literacy supports are a key element aimed at building the financial well-being of newcomers to Canada. These supports can help individuals and families learn where to turn for help and equip them to develop and implement plans to achieve key life goals, including homeownership, going to school, starting a business, and planning for retirement.

It is critical for every newcomer to Canada to learn how to handle their finances and how to begin generating wealth in the new country.
