Launched in 2015, the Québec Financial Education Strategy is an AMF-led project aimed at mobilizing financial education organizations and specialists and consolidating their activities. The latest edition sets out the major orientations and initiatives adopted for 2019 through 2022.
As part of the Québec Financial Education Strategy, key stakeholders in financial education worked together to establish a charter of essential skills for financial well-being. The charter offers specialists in this field an inventory of the essential financial skills that consumers should acquire. This tool is will evolve over time: skills could be added and others removed.
