Teaching Kids About Finances With CIBC Smart Start

 "This is what we should've been taught in school." A phrase commonly heard or made into memes by those of my generation. Taxes, life skills, those sort of lessons. And I couldn't agree more that these are key areas of knowledge that often get overlooked with traditional schooling curriculums. But it's never too early to learn and as parents, we have the power to dictate when and how we introduce these lessons to our children ourselves.

In a series of posts, I will be working with CIBC to share various tips and tools available through their CIBC banking solutions, like their CIBC Smart Account and the CIBC Smart Start benefit available to those 25 years of age and younger.

My first post here shows the ways in which we focus on acquiring, tracking and saving money with our children school aged and younger.

The CIBC Smart Start benefits allows them to have the same account from sign up to 25. No switching from a children's account, to student, so on and so forth. The entire time, account holders benefit from perks like unlimited transactions and no fees, as well as tools and alerts for saving for when they come into the age o fusing a debit card, etc.

Find out more about how you can open an account for you or your child(ren) and be automatically enrolled in the benefit here:

And stay tuned for parts 2 and 3 of the series over on my Instagram.

x, OM
