Previous bulletin or notice
This information bulletin updates notice # 702 - Canada Learning Bond Eligibility criteria amendments.
The purpose of this information bulletin is to inform promoters and trustees that the income brackets used, in part, to determine eligibility for the CLB have been indexed for the July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019, benefit year.
The CLB is subject to section 6 (1) of the Canada Education Savings Act which uses, in part, the adjusted income of a beneficiary’s individual primary caregiver to determine eligibility for the CLB. These amounts are indexed yearly, based on inflation.
The Canada Revenue Agency has released the 2018 indexation adjustment for personal income tax and benefit amounts. Due to this indexation adjustment, income brackets for the CLB eligibility have been established for July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019 benefit year.
