The Scotiabank Women Initiative

The Scotiabank Women Initiative has collaborated with Dr. Barbara Orser and Dr. Allan Riding of the Telfer School of Management, University of Ottawa. Together, we have created learning aids designed to assist with the development of your business.

Assessing Your Financial Knowledge is an exercise that allows you to evaluate your own understanding the gendered nature of finance. Generally speaking, Canadian male and female business owners differ with respect to level of financial knowledge. Only 19% of women and 22% of men said there are “very confident” in their skills in financial management. Strengthening your financial knowledge will strengthen your financial management.
