Northern Credit Union Inspires Cities to Declare November 'Financial Literacy Month"

As part of our commitment to financial literacy for all Canadians, Northern Credit Union is proud to announce that we successfully encouraged mayors, officials and council delegates across Northern Ontario to officially designate November as “Financial Literacy Month”. Sault Ste. Marie, North Bay, Thunder Bay, Sudbury and Timmins have already showed their support for the initiative, with more municipalities expected to step up soon.

A sound understanding of personal banking and finance is an important tool that can last a lifetime. That’s why Northern Credit Union has made it our goal help young people gain this critical knowledge. All through November, we’ll be providing educational resources and hosting classroom sessions for high school students, funding scholarships, and debut an online financial literacy trivia game and contest. Making November “Financial Literacy Month” will without doubt aid us in these efforts!
