RESPs & Canada Learning Bonds

Momentum”, a non-profit organization based out of Calgary, presented to the Board on increasing knowledge and awareness of accessing the Canada Learning Bond for all families.

FREE MONEY! Did you know that by just registering your child for an RESPS at your local bank, your child may qualify for Canada Learning Bonds of up to $2000 for their education without you having to contribute ANY money.

The SmartSaver Program helps families understand the Canada Learning Bond and provides families with the information they need to get government money for their children’s post-secondary education. Momentum reported that the Canada Learning Bond uptake in Wetaskiwin is only at 27% of eligible families, which indicates that many families are missing out on this opportunity. For more information regarding the Canada Learning Bond and how it can benefit your family, contact District Office.
