Information bulletin

Number:  CESP/PCEE-2019/20-004-829

Date: September 1, 2019

Subject: Coming into force of the Regulations Amending the Canada Education Savings Regulations, as well as the Educational Assistance Payment (EAP) formulae for the Saskatchewan Advantage Grant for Education Savings (SAGES) and British Columbia Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG)

Purpose

The purpose of this information bulletin is to remind Promoters and Trustees that the Regulations Amending the Canada Education Savings Regulations, as well as the EAP formulae for the SAGES and BCTESG are coming into force on September 1, 2019.

Background

The Regulations Amending the Canada Education Savings Regulations have been made and were published in the Canada Gazette, Part II on December 26, 2018 (See the official pdf and non-official html versions).

As a result of these regulatory changes, the EAP formulae for the SAGES and BCTESG became misaligned. The provinces of Saskatchewan and British Columbia have decided to align their EAP formulae with the federal EAP formulae, through amendments to the Promoter and Trustee Agreements, which take effect on September 1, 2019.

Coming into force

As previously announced in Infobulletin #802, as of September 1, 2019, Promoters and Trustees are expected to administer all of the regulatory changes, as well as the modified SAGES and BCTESG formulae, as previously announced in Infobulletin #820 . Questions and Answers pertaining to these amendments can be found in Infobulletin #826.
