The Student Budget Consultation provides youth with an opportunity to learn about the government’s revenues and expenditures, discuss important political and economic issues and suggested policies, and offer their insights on the priorities of the upcoming federal budget.
The opinions of students are collected through a survey and the results are shared with the Department of Finance and with all federal political parties.
THE LEARNING PHASES
To prepare for the consultation, you are encouraged to become informed about the budget, explore current national issues and compare differing viewpoints about budget priorities.
Educators receive informative and engaging resources and easy-to use lessons plans, along with videos and slide decks.
The Student Budget Consultation survey asks students to answer questions related to assessing priorities for Budget 2024.
The Student Budget Consultation survey can be accessed online: budgetconsultation.ca/survey
Student opinions will be shared with the Department of Finance and with all parties so that they can see what matters to young Canadians.
