Did you know you can get FREE MONEY for school after high school?
The Canada Learning Bond (CLB) is FREE money that the Government adds to Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) for children from low-income families. Open a RESP account for your kids at a bank and ask them to check the box for Canada Learning Bond.
CLB money helps pay the costs of a full- or part-time studies after high school and can be used for:
apprenticeship programs and trade schools
colleges and universities
No personal contributions to an RESP are required to receive the CLB. You just have to open an RESP account at a bank (no fees) and apply for it.
How much a child could get:
The Government of Canada contributes up to $2,000 to an RESP for an eligible child. This includes:
$500 for the first year of eligibility
$100 each year the child continues to be eligible (up to and including the benefit year in which they turn 15)
A child is eligible for the FREE CLB money if they:
are from a low-income family
are born on or after January 1, 2004
are a resident of Canada
have a valid Social Insurance Number (SIN)
are named in an RESP account at a bank
*Children in care, for whom a Children’s Special Allowance is payable, ARE eligible for the CLB.
*Eligible children can apply for the CLB retroactively.
Request the CLB on behalf of an eligible child when you open an Registered Education Saving Plan at a bank.
Don’t forget! Regardless of income, open an RESP for your kids and receive up to $500 of free money per year from the Canada Education Savings Program
