Financial Education Week is an annual program
of the Institute for Mexicans Abroad that is organized in
coordination with Mexico's consular network in North America.
It is supported by public and private
institutions in Mexico, the United States and Canada that offer workshops on
access to financial services, business development and basic personal and
family financial management.
It is held each year in March and
April to improve the financial knowledge and skills of Mexican migrants so that
they can make informed decisions about how to manage their financial
resources. Locally, Mexico’s consular
network in North America promotes participation in community and
institutional events during Financial Education Week.
The IME coordinates the participation
of Mexican institutions, while Mexico’s embassies in the United States and
Canada seek the participation of national institutions there and the consulates
coordinate the participation of local partners in fairs, workshops, seminars
and community events that are continued throughout the year.
