The North: Request a financial literacy series

Remote living areas and limited objective resources present unique financial literacy challenges to those living in northern Canada. Our no-cost, award-winning workshops are here to help.

Why the North?

  • northern Canadian communities face isolation and high costs of living, reducing access to unbiased, objective financial education
  • financial situations in remote communities may be different than those in the south
  • many parents do not feel confident enough to teach their children about financial matters at home

Why CPA Canada?

  • our award-winning Financial Literacy Program helps Canadians of all ages make more informed financial decisions
  • our unbiased, objective educational sessions are delivered nationwide and are offered at no cost
  • we will provide a CPA volunteer to deliver the presentation at your location

What we can do together

Together, CPA Canada and the North can work to address a significant social issue – lack of financial literacy. We can provide no-cost sessions to groups of citizens, such as in small businesses, workplaces and schools.
