Policy in Focus, Issue 14
This issue of Policy in Focus features a report that reveals how more than 900,000 Canadian kids do not access the Canada Learning Bond which can provide up to $2,000 in educational savings. The report makes four recommendations for organizations serving low-income families to provide accurate information in their own communities and languages. It also makes recommendations to government to make it easier for low-income families to start an RESP that suits their needs.
