Talk With Our Kids About Money Day

The “Talk With Our Kids About Money” Day 2015 is fast approaching. The event is taking place Wednesday April 15th.

We encourage members of the media to participate in “Talk With Our Kids About Money twokamDay.” There will be opportunities to do stories, interviews, panel discussions, articles, and more.

The program encourages Canadians to have conversations with youth about money and personal finance. The annual event takes place the third Wednesday in April, this year, April 15, with a “Home Program” for families and a “School Program” for Grade Seven students and teachers. Both parents and teachers can visit the online hub, http://www.talkwithourkidsaboutmoney.com, free for anyone to access, and updated with resources and curriculum ideas.

Some of the Launch Activities that will be taking place in Québec that could attract media coverage on the “Talk With Our Kids About Money Day” on Wednesday April 15th are:
