The Canada Learning Bond helps families living on lower incomes start saving for their children’s education by providing each eligible child with up to $2000 in contributions toward a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP).
Due to low awareness, over 1.5 million children across Canada (almost 70% of those eligible) have not yet received their Bond.
Bethlehem Housing and Support Services has partnered with education savings advocate SmartSAVER to offer a new online Canada Learning Bond application called Start My RESP. The Start My RESP application makes it easier for families to access this federal education money.
Applicants can apply to start an RESP with no fees and with no contribution required to access the CLB. This user-friendly application provides language support in five languages: Spanish, French, Mandarin, English, and Punjabi (with more languages to come).
