Weekly Reading LinksIn case you missed it, November is Financial Literacy Month for Canadians. This national media campaign was spearheaded by Glenn Cooke, of LifeInsuranceCanada.com. Yesterday on November 15th, all thirty-five bloggers who took part published their best financial tip.

My tip here on the Dividend Pig was why you should avoid mutual funds.

It’s that time of the week again, with my favourite links from the Financial Literacy campaign. This is a different focus than the usual dividend articles. Instead I’m focusing on important financial lessons we all need to be reminded of.

Check out these great reads from around the web for Financial Literacy!
