YoMo Seniors ENG RGB

Are you looking for financial literacy resources for seniors or do you manage a seniors’ group that would benefit from brushing up their knowledge on how to avoid financial abuse and fraud?

Many seniors are contemplating important questions such as “How can I ensure that my money will last through retirement? Should I be thinking about how to manage my financial affairs if at some point I can’t do it myself? What scams should I be aware of?”

To help answer those questions, the Canadian Bankers Association, in partnership with the federal Financial Consumer Agency of Canada, launched a new program called Your Money Seniors offering free financial literacy seminars to Canadian seniors across the country.

Others may have difficulty completing advance ballots. A group at particular risk of political exclusion are people living with dementia.

First a quick recap...
