The publication features CBCs Dragons Den star and Bay Street bad boy Michael Wekerle as he shares his insight on the importance of financial literacy. He notes “when Canadians are more financially literate, not only are they more successful in their own right, but theyre also able to contribute to a stronger Canada from a financial point of view.”

Noel Archard, Managing Director and Head of BlackRock Canada, shares how exchange-traded funds (ETFs) could be the move that gives your investment portfolio the jump-start that it needs. ETFs allow investors to gain broad exposure to markets and sectors they may not feel comfortable accessing through a single security, he says, and notes through ETFs, investors can add some emerging market and global bond exposure to their portfolios in a cost effective way.

Special thanks to BlackRock, IIROC, CDIC, and Home Trust among others for their support and contributions in the making of this campaign.
