April 20 “Talk With Our Kids About Money Day”

Even though any day is a great day to talk with young people about finances and money, Canadian Federation for Economic Education (CFEE) has set the third Wednesday of April as a day to “get conversations started” and bring attention to the importance of talking with our kids about money – starting at a young age. Last year over 2500 schools participated in this event. This year we are hoping to have more youth engaged in this important conversation.
