Did you know November is Financial Literacy month in Canada?
Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FLAG) in an effort to raise financial awareness among public, organizes events all across the country to promote services and tools available to help Canadians improve their financial knowledge, skills and confidence.
What exactly will this accomplish?
Celebrate Financial Literacy Month the SmartSAVER way!
Well, for starters, providing for yourself and your family financially is important to you, yes? Investing in your children’s future is a sacred duty as a Parent. Financial Literacy is a way to gain understanding and skill set to make this happen.
Time and time again, I have written about the importance of saving up for your child’s education. Without a plan in place, do you think you will be able to provide for your child’s post secondary education? If you don’t have one, now is a great time to begin! How about starting your childâ€™s education savings with free money from the Government of Canada?
Apply for the Canada Learning Bond. If your child was born January 1, 2004 or after, and you qualify for the National Child Benefit Supplement, you could get your child up to $2,000. This is fantastic, isn’t it?
What is Canada Learning Bond?
It is a contribution you make that’s paid right into an eligible child’s Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP), even if you don’t contribute any money yourself. This is where SmartSAVER comes in! They make it easier for you to learn about RESPs and to get the Canada Learning Bond.Parents!
