One in five older Canadians is subject to elder financial abuse and every six minutes, a Canadian is diagnosed with dementia – this according to CARP, the country’s largest advocacy association for older Canadians. However, financial vulnerability is not necessarily linked to age. Anyone – a parent, sibling, neighbour, colleague – can become vulnerable at any age because of trauma, a major life change, or a medical condition. Additionally, those with less financial literacy or knowledge are often vulnerable.

Statistically speaking, new immigrants and Indigenous Peoples are more likely to face financial stress. In fact, some studies suggest that as many as 15% of individuals in Aboriginal communities may not even have a bank account. For newcomers to Canada, the challenge is very different. While a high proportion of new immigrants are well-educated, many struggle to find work, thus hindering their earning capabilities. Enter ABC Life Literacy Canada.
