Today marks the start of Canada’s third annual Financial Planning Week, and the Financial Planning Standards Council wants Canadians to get more engaged in their financial wellbeing.

“While many Canadians may have great intentions, they fall into the procrastination trap,” says Tamara Smith, vice-president, marketing and consumer affairs, FPSC. “We are putting a call out to every Canadian: this Financial Planning Week, it’s time to take action—even if in small steps—to do more towards your financial wellbeing.”

During Financial Planning Week, the FPSC and the Institut québécois de planification financière (IQPF) will spearhead industry events and public outreach activities in their respective markets.

The FPSC asked Canadians about financial planning, budgeting and retirement, and has released a video of on-the-street interviews.

On Oct. 19, the FPSC will host Vision 2020, a symposium for financial planners, with the theme of The Evolution of Advice. Vision 2020 will take place at Toronto’s Old Mill Inn, starting at 8 a.m. and running until 5 p.m. staff
