Week 3: Know your rights and responsibilities

Financial literacy is about the knowledge, skills and confidence that you need to make financial decisions that are right for your needs. It is never too early or too late to increase your financial understanding, no matter your age or financial situation.

Financial Literacy Month - Week 3 (Nov 14-20): Know your rights and responsibilities

  • The more you know and understand about your financial rights and responsibilities, the easier it is to avoid costly surprises and to reach your financial goals.
  • We all have a responsibility to inform ourselves of rates, terms, and penalties associated with financial services and products.
  • Financial institutions have an obligation to give consumers clear information and protection.

There are hundreds of Canadian resources to help you make financial decisions. Find the tools you need to better manage your money and debt here.

 

Week 2: Live within your means

Financial Literacy Month - Week 2 (Nov 7-13): Live within your means

  • Small changes in your spending habits can have a big impact in your overall financial situation.

Ding Free Day - April 22

Mountain View Credit Union celebrates national ding free® day and all the money our members save on ATM surcharges. You can save your share of up to $32 million this year, by taking advantage of thousands of ding free ATMs across the country where you can withdraw cash without paying a surcharge. 

Today credit unions across the country are celebrating this ding free status and raising awareness of this benefit with members and non-members. The surcharge for using another institution’s ATM can be up to $4, which can add up quickly.
Download the ding free® app to locate the nearest ding free ATM here, and look for the ding free ATM decals on participating ATMs. Learn more at ding-free.ca.
