In collaboration with SmartSAVER, FRP Canada is working to help thousands of families across Canada access free money for their children’s future education.
Research demonstrates that even small amounts of education savings improve student achievement, well-being, equity of opportunity and outcomes. In fact, students with as little as $500 in savings earmarked for their education are 3 times more likely to attend post-secondary and 4 times more likely to graduate than those who have none.
As a trusted family resource, you have the power to help eligible children in your community access thousands of dollars in untapped education savings money.
The Canada Learning Bond is a federal grant of up to $2,000 available to lower-income children born 2004 or later. Unfortunately, most eligible children are missing out on this free money, largely because their families don’t know about it or how to access it. Across Canada, 2.2 million children are eligible but only 3 in 10 are receiving it!
Learn more about the power of education savings, the Canada Learning Bond AND how you can help eligible families access this free money!
