In a time of coronavirus and economic uncertainty, it’s more important than ever for Canadians to protect their financial well-being. But what about the decisions we make that leave us vulnerable? This year, for the 10th anniversary of Financial Literacy Month, Rob Paddick, Deputy Ombudsman for the Ombudsman for Banking Services and Investments (OBSI) will join CNPEA on November 26th to help participants learn to protect their finances in challenging times. He will share examples about scams to avoid, what elder abuse looks like, how a Power of Attorney works and how to resolve a complaint against your financial services provider.
