Financial Literacy Participant Handbook: Module 7 – Credit reporting (2011)

This handbook is part of a nine-module workshop, developed by the Canadian Centre for Financial Literacy (CCFL) to train front-line staff in community organizations to deliver financial literacy programs.

This module contains handouts and activity sheets about credit reporting, the process of collecting information about how individuals use credit and preparing reports based on that information.

The authors explain the kind of information gathered for credit reports; why it is important for a person to check his credit report; the person’s rights with regard to his credit report; and who can have access to a credit report.

They provide a sample credit report, then explain in detail how to read it and what to do if there is an error in the report.

The CCFL is a division of Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI), which was established in 1986 to help low-income earners gain financial independence through financial literacy, asset building, and entrepreneurship.
