“Financial resilience” sounds nice. But our work only matters when we help organizations like yours move the needle on sobering statistics like these:

Of Canadians are ‘Extremely Vulnerable’ (with a financial resilience score of 0 to  30) based on the June 2022 Index – an increase from 16.5% last year


91% of ‘Extremely Vulnerable’ households have a negative or zero household savings rate

Say The Nicest Things

{"We were so pleased to work with Eloise and the entire Financial Resilience Institute. Their robust research and analytic skills are foundational to the work we are doing to leverage the skills of Financial Planners to improve the financial resilience of Canadians in all income demographics."
Tashia Batstone
President and CEO
{"The Financial Resilience Institute team has invested the time and energy to get to know our team and organization and meaningfully engage with our senior leaders. This has helped orient us in our purpose-led journey and get critical buy-in around the opportunities the Seymour Financial Resilience Index® brings in helping us achieve our purpose of financial security for Canadians and our communities. Eloise and her team have provided impactful strategic consulting, data, and analytics for Co-operators, and we are now a funder of the Financial Resilience Institute to help further amplify the Institute’s impact in communities across the country."
Chad Park
VP Sustainability and Citizenship, Co-operators
{"Eloise is an exceptional and generous thought leader, providing much-needed data and analysis to the ecosystem of organizations dedicated to the financial health and financial resilience of Canadians. The Seymour Financial Resilience Index® has been vital in guiding Vancity’s commitment to Financial Health and Inclusion, providing useful insight on how to build the financial resilience of our members and communities."
Andrea Harris,
VP Impact Strategy, Vancity
{"Prosper Canada has struggled for a long time to get a clear picture of the financial health and resilience of Canadians with low to moderate incomes, due to the lack of comprehensive, timely disaggregated public data. The Financial Resilience Institute and Index have transformed our work, enabling us to finally join hard data with our qualitative insights to provide a detailed picture of the financial challenges households are experiencing and key trends over time. With support from Eloise and her team, we’re able to generate and share new and important insights with our government, business and community partners – helping them to better understand what Canadians are experiencing, and where they can usefully intervene to help financially struggling households build their financial stability and health."
Liz Mulholland
CEO, Prosper Canada

Eric Dillon
Former CEO at Conexus Credit Union and President, General Bank of Canada
{“Eloise Duncan helped us to develop our four-year enterprise strategy, financial wellness and small business financial strategy.
