About the Seymour Financial Resilience Index™

The Index measures and tracks households’ financial resilience in Canada. Household financial resilience is defined as a household’s ability to get through financial hardship, stressors and shocks as a result of unplanned life events. 

Launched in May 2020 with a pre-pandemic baseline of February 2020, the Index has been peer-reviewed by Statistics Canada and is the first Index of its kind in the world.

The Index builds on over six years’ of longitudinal national Financial Well-Being studies data. It measures household financial resilience for bank customers and customers of any organization.

The Index measures and tracks households’ financial resilience (and financial vulnerability) at the national, provincial, segment and individual household levels*.
