This day has been deemed the National TWOKAM: Talk With Our Kids About Money Day


We need to help our children understand the benefits of smart money choices so they can go from financially fit kids to financially successful adults.

In this fun and interactive workshop you will learn how to:

  • Identify what are the consequences of not teaching children about money;
  •  Recognize what kids are learning from us to create their money history;
  •  Start the conversation around money values;
  •  Introduce money management to your children at an appropriate age;

And much more!

This 90 minute workshop is interactive and fun! We take a “grab and go” approach – grab an idea or two and go try it. All participants will walk away with ideas, resources and the full curriculum upon request.

FREE but space is limited – register online, by calling 604-299-8955, or in person at the library.

Offered in cooperation with the Credit Counselling Society.
