TORONTO, ON (October 31, 2016) – Talking about money may be the last big taboo, but Capital One Canada and Credit Canada Debt Solutions argue that it’s time to start the conversation and broadcast our financial wins – no matter how big or small. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Credit Education Week, which runs from November 7-11, Credit Canada Debt Solutions, in partnership with Capital One Canada, asked Canadians to share insights into their financial wins. While there’s a perception that Canadians hold the goal of home ownership above all else, the survey found that in reality, Canadians rank milestones like buying a home (12 per cent) or car (8 per cent) as less important financial wins than feeling financially secure in their daily lives (25 per cent).
“There is so much to learn from the positive, everyday financial experiences of our friends and family,” says Brent Reynolds, Managing Vice President, Capital One Canada. “Milestone moments like a new home or car may garner more ‘likes’, but it’s the experiences not easily shared in 140 characters that are most impactful – like how we took charge of our finances or recovered from a financial stumble.”
