Apply for the Canada Learning Bond (CLB) – Apply
To complete your application, you need to do the following:
1. Gather personal information
Before requesting the CLB on behalf of an eligible child, the following is needed:
- a Social Insurance Number (SIN) for the subscriber or the Business Number of the agency if the child is in care
- a SIN for the child
If the subscriber is not the child’s primary caregiver, you will need their SIN too.
2. Contact a participating RESP promoter to open an RESP
If a child has already been named the beneficiary of an RESP, but is not receiving the CLB, speak to the RESP promoter.
3. Check that the CLB is deposited in the RESP
Once the application is approved, the CLB will be deposited in the RESP for every year that the child is eligible.
