Canada Learning Bond – How much a child could receive

From Employment and Social Development Canada

3. How much a child could receive

A child could receive a total of up to $2,000 in a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) to help pay for their education after high school.

This includes:

  • $500 for the first year of eligibility; and
  • $100 for each year they remain eligible, until the calendar year they turn 15

In addition, the Government of Canada will deposit $25 in an RESP to help cover the costs of opening the plan.

A child can get the Canada Learning Bond in an RESP even if you do not contribute any money to the plan.
