In June 2005, Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI), the Policy Research Initiative (PRI), and the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) organized Canadians and Their Money: A National Symposium on Financial Capability. The conference stemmed from an initial examination by SEDI of the linkage between financial capability and poverty, a project conducted in the context of PRI’s horizontal policy research on poverty and exclusion. It brought together about 150 senior government representatives, scholars, social policy experts, and community representatives from Canada, the United States, and Europe, to learn about existing research, policy, and practice in the area, and to assess the relevance of financial capability for social policy, consumer protection, and financial services in Canada.
