We’re a purpose-driven organization and a leading independent authority on financial health in Canada.
Seymour Management Consulting Inc. is a purpose-driven consulting firm and social enterprise, based in Vancouver Canada. Established in 2009, our team is working to help improve the financial resilience, financial well-being and well-being of Canadians at scale, and in particular more vulnerable and underserved populations. We do this primarily by working with Financial Institutions, Governments and other committed organizations.
As creators of the Seymour Financial Resilience Index TM, we are the first and only organization to measure and track the financial well-being of Canadians as an independent authority, through the national Financial Well-Being studies, first launched in 2017.
We’re a passionate, global team of strategists, statisticians, thinkers and creators, with deep expertise in financial services research, strategy, transformation and change management, in Canada and other markets internationally.
With proven customer-led methodologies we help translate insights into strategy, and strategy into action.

We recognize that consumers are ultimately in charge of their financial health well-being, and our work is part of a much wider global financial health movement. We’re excited to be leading change in Canada and with other committed innovators.
We also led strategy development projects outside of financial services for new and existing clients.
We’re members of the C.D. Howe Institute and the Association of Certified Management Consultants of B.C.
Our Vision is for a more resilient, equitable and inclusive Canada
We are striving to improve the financial health and resilience of all Canadians, while helping to build a more resilient, equitable and inclusive Canada.
Our research and index highlights that financial well-being contributes to overall individual well-being, and the well-being and resilience of individuals, families, communities, organizations and our country.
Why this matters?
The financial health and resilience of individuals, families and small business owners is critical for overall personal well-being, relationships, economic growth and prosperity and our communities. Financial stress negatively impacts physical and emotional health, relationships and family well-being; can lead to isolation; unhealthy behaviours, lost productivity and engagement of employees, stifled business and economic growth and other impacts. Financial stress is a mainstream issue – and was an increasing mainstream issue in Canada long before Covid-19 hit our country, as validated through our National FInancial Health Index Studies since 2017.
For Government – providing the right targeted financial support, benefits and programs for Canadians, families and small businesses, including those who are most vulnerable, or have highly challenged financial resilience, is a priority, particularly in light of the pandemic. Getting the right resources and support to the right citizens and provinces is important.
For Financial Institutions – supporting the financial wellness and resilience of your customers, and managing risk management, portfolio and credit strategies – as well as your customer experience delivery – is central to your and your customers’ success.
For social enterprises and non-profit organizations – ensuring your programs and interventions have maximum impact, and lead to financial health and resilience outcomes and financial empowerment medium to longer term, will enable you to make the most of your resources and drive measurable impact.
For Employers – supporting the financial health of your leaders and employees directly supports their engagement, productivity and enables them to do their best work. Our data highlights that financial stress has a negative impact on many employees’ work and daily lives, and also impacts their overall mental and physical health and well-being.
For Individuals – knowing what to think about and manage as it relates to your financial health, resilience and wellness will help you live your best life. And if you’re a parent or part of a family, impact financial health and well-being across generations. Reducing or managing your financial stress will have many positive outcomes. And you deserve to know what questions to ask, and where to go for help.
