“Last year over 5,000 schools and over 660,000 students across Canada participated in this day. These efforts have been championed by parents and volunteers across many communities in Canada that work in partnership with the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education. Through their work, teachers and families are empowered with the tools to talk with our kids about money, not only on April 18 but year-round.

“I’d like to recognize my constituent Kumi Abercrombie for her continued commitment to this cause and her efforts in bringing this proclamation to the province.”
