All Canadians aspire to a quality of life that provides access to opportunity for themselves and their families. We at SEDI know that there are basic requirements, which form the underpinnings of achieving this goal. They are education, health care, employment and income security, wealth and asset accumulation and social connectivity. Furthermore, we have learned from our pioneering work in self employment and asset building that 'good' information delivered in a timely and effective manner is a critical component in successful individual and family decision making about critical economic and social matters. Making the right decisions requires access to the 'good' information noted above particularly in an increasingly complex economic environment. This type of information is commonly referred to as financial literacy a concept for which the government Canada has yet to develop a strategy or policy.
