This is Financial Literacy Month in Canada. Do you have the necessary knowledge to deal with over-indebtedness?

Pier-Paul Belzil-Lacasse, Lead Senior Manager and Licensed Insolvency Trustee explains the importance for everyone to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to interpret financial information and make informed decisions. They will be more self-sufficient and less likely to fall into the over-indebtedness trap.

It’s also important to know the difference between want and need and to have the discipline to build a financial cushion, which, ideally, should be at least six months of salary to handle unforeseen situations such as illness, job loss, separation.

To find out more about sound financial habits and Financial Literacy Month, listen to our expert’s November 14, 2018 interview on Radio-Canada.
