Understanding Your Own Financial Wellness

The FP Canada Research Foundation conducted the Financial Wellness Study, in partnership with CPA Canada, to help Canadians assess, articulate and ultimately improve their degree of financial wellness. The study showed that by framing their view of financial wellness and what it means to them, Canadians can better identify gaps between their current and desired state and more effectively communicate with the financial planners who can help them reach their goals.

Based on the Financial Wellness Study and with the financial support of the FP Canada Research Foundation, CPA Canada developed the Financial Wellness Guide, an interactive questionnaire that helps Canadians understand money basics and how to apply learnings in their own lives.
