The second QFES action plan, covering the years 2019 to 2022, focuses on helping young people, workers and newcomers acquire new skills and develop greater financial awareness.

These groups were targeted after consulting with the financial education partners in the fall of 2018.

The following two orientations underpin the 2019-2022 QFES action plan:

  1. Collaboration: Further mobilize the Québec network of financial education specialists in order to increase the number of contributors, support collaboration and maximize impact.
  2. Financial well-being: Provide Quebeckers with tools and programs adapted to their needs and to economic, demographic and technological issues.

“With the support of its partners, the AMF is working hard to encourage and help Québec consumers become more vigilant in their financial habits and when making investment decisions. Now, more than ever, as technology continues to change and more and more new platforms offering investment opportunities emerge, financial education appears to be a preferred information vehicle for raising consumer awareness about new risks and delivering on our mission to protect Québec depositors and investors.”
