The Canada Learning Bond (CLB) is money that the Government of Canada deposits directly into a child's Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) account to help parents get a head start on saving for their child's education after high school. 
After high school, your child can withdraw the money to help pay for either full-time or part-time studies:
  • in an apprenticeship program;
  • at a CEGEP;
  • at a trade school;
  • at a college; or
  • at a university.


The Canada Learning Bond is available to children: If you qualify, all you need to start is:
  • The Social Insurance Number (SIN), name and date of birth of
  • the child who this is for.
  • Your SIN and contact information.
