Student Budget Consultation
Student Budget Consultation: provides students an opportunity to learn more about Canadian government, understand budgeting, and explore different views about important issues facing the country: http://budgetconsultation.ca/ . Students offer their insights on the priorities of the upcoming federal budget through a consultation survey and these results are shared with the Department of Finance and all political parties. Participating schools receive access to a series of activities, animated videos explaining the federal government’s revenues and expenditures, interviews with youth advocating for key issues, as well as additional video content providing a cross-partisan pitch from all federal political parties.
The program is free and non-partisan, and takes between two to four classes to complete. Classes can register now by visiting http://studentvote.ca/federal_sbc/ or by calling 1-866-488-8775. Please see attachment for more information.
