Empowering Professionals & Canadians for Financial Literacy Month

 

It’s the perfect time to check-in on your financial wellness.

As we move into Financial Literacy Month, the Canadian Securities Institute (CSI) recognizes the opportunity for Canadians to slow down and think more about the significant role financial awareness plays in our overall wellbeing.

 

As a leading provider of financial services education and Canada’s premier licensing credential, we’re devoted to empowering Canadians with access to our growing digital library of dedicated, free resources that encourage a broader understanding of the evolving Canadian financial markets to the public, as well as professionals across the industry.

Sharing valuable perspectives in an evolving financial landscape.

Every year, we host a series of webinars that dive into how the financial services landscape is evolving, inviting a variety of perspectives from thought leaders and professionals in the banking space to share their personal stories and industry knowledge.
