Education Savings Week - Nov 16 - 22, 2014

4 November 2014
Mark your calendars and join us to celebrate Education Savings Week from November 16 - 22! Education is essential to finding a good job and actively participating in the community.

But education can be costly. That is why the federal government offers financial incentives to help all Canadians save for children’s education after high school. Education Savings Week is an opportunity to raise awareness and understanding of Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs), the Canada Learning Bond (CLB) and the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG).
 
Did you know that as of 2013, Canadian families held RESP assets worth over $40 billion? Nearly half of all Canadian children have benefited from the CESG. In addition, the Government of Canada has paid out over $8 billion in CESGs and nearly $500 million in CLBs.
 
Education after high school is the greatest investment parents can make for their children! Find out more by visiting CanLearn.ca
