Presentation to the Task Force on Financial Literacy (2010)

This is a presentation made to the Government of Canada’s Task Force on Financial Literacy by Movement for Canadian Literacy (MCL). The authors describe the cost to society of low literacy skills and provide information on literacy levels in Canada’s provinces and territories.

MCL’s recommendations include requiring financial institutions to use plain language in verbal and written dealings with vulnerable consumers; promoting greater flexibility in banking practices to reduce reliance on “payday loan” companies; and ensuring that any Canadian financial literacy strategy is inclusive and accessible to vulnerable populations.

The task force was established in 2009 and published its final report in February 2011. The report can be found at http://library.copian.ca/item/9167.
