The LearnSmart program works to empower Canadian youth and young adults to open a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) and apply for the Canada Learning Bond (CLB ). Open an RESP today online in 10 minutes and access $500 up to $2000 of government funds to help pay for your post-secondary education.

Education savings influence post-secondary enrollment and completion
Post-secondary education is an inter-generational poverty reduction and prevention tool
Aspire and it’s partners work to raise the awareness of RESPs and the CLB, through sharing information directly with families, hosting information sessions, and offering follow-up support to families (such as obtaining ID or going to the bank).
