Financial Literacy

Weak financial literacy is one of the single biggest reasons why small businesses don’t succeed. According to Intuit Canada, 44 per cent of small business owners have below average financial literacy skills and only 18 per cent could be considered above average. Without the technical know-how or the support to aid them, the odds are stacked against entrepreneurs who want to succeed.

Startup Canada undertakes programs and cross-sector initiatives to support entrepreneurs to improve their financial literacy and financial management acumen, so that they can build more resilient and successful companies.
