Free Education Money with the Canada Learning Bond

You could get up to $2,000 for your child's Registered Education Savings Plan with a Canada Learning Bond.

This is a Government of Canada contribution to your child's Registered Education Savings Plan. It provides up to $2,000 in savings for the post-secondary education of all eligible children.

First you should check your family income to see if you are eligible to begin the process

If you are eligible, your child must be:

  • Born on or after January 1, 2004
  • A Canadian resident
  • Named as a beneficiary in a Registered Education Savings Plan
  • You and your child have a Social Insurance Number
  • And you have ever been eligible for the National Child Benefit Supplement (“family allowance”)

There is no cost and you don’t need to contribute any money.
