The Task Force on Financial Literacy has delivered its final report to the Minister of Finance. The report, entitled
Canadians and Their Money: Building a brighter financial future, contains 30 recommendations which reflect the views and priorities of Canadians.

The Task Force states that financial literacy is critical to the prosperity of individual Canadians and the nation as a whole. The report stresses how increasing the knowledge, skills and confidence of Canadians in making financial decisions will help them meet their personal goals, enhance their quality of life and make Canada more competitive.

The National Strategy’s priorities are:

•  Shared Responsibility

•  Leadership and Collaboration

•  Lifelong Learning

•  Delivery and Promotion

•  Accountability

The Nova Scotia Securities Commission, working with our partners in the Canadian Securities Administrators, strives to advance investor education and through this increase the financial literacy of Canadians. We look forward to collaborating with these and other providers to assist Canadians in managing their finances throughout their lifetimes.

We encourage you to read the full report, which can be found at
