Financial literacy as an antidote to stress

Financial stress affects our sleep, behaviour, relationships and performance. Financial literacy is critical to reducing this pressure and increasing general wellbeing.

Why It Matters

Money is the most significant source of stress for many Canadians—more than work, personal health and relationships. Most Canadians cannot access an employer retirement plan, making retirement planning their responsibility. However, financial literacy can help reduce this tension for many Canadian households, increasing their wellbeing.
