About the Day
The goal is to focus attention on talking with our kids about money – and to encourage and support parents, guardians, and teachers to start or continue such talks with youth. Canada’s Task Force on Financial Literacy noted that improving financial literacy was a shared responsibility, that it would be a lifelong process, and that it was important for financial education to be provided in our public schools. This project responds to all of these key points. In addition, experts and research indicate that young people can benefit from early discussions about money – to help build knowledge and skills for the decisions they will face. Any day could be “Talk With Our Kids About Money Day” but we are focusing on one day a year – the third Wednesday of April – to “get conversations started” and bring attention to the importance of talking with our kids about money – starting at a young age.
