Personal Finance

Financial literacy is critical to the financial well-being of all Canadians. When hard-working people have the tools that they need to make informed financial decisions, their personal financial circumstances will change for the better.

Regina Public Library's financial literacy programs cover a wide range of needs, including:

  • Budgeting, saving, and debt education for low-income individuals and families
  • Fraud prevention for seniors, and
  • Tax, estate planning, wealth management for working professionals and business owners.

We partner with CPA Canada and other organizations to promote financial literacy in the community. Our speakers include designated accountants and accredited financial advisors.

CPA Financial Literacy Series

We have a strong partnership with Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) Canada, and work together to select topics, line up speakers, and ensure our financial literacy presentations are useful and informative.
