RESPThe Canada Learning Bond (CLB) is part of the Canadian RESP program. Actually the CLB is a grant. The big difference between this grant and the regular RESP grants is that no contribution is required. Once you qualify, you apply, and you can receive up to $2,000 deposited in your RESP account per child. The family net income must be below $43,561, in 2013 ($42,707 for 2012). An RESP account can be set up at a financial institution. This grant will provide more low income families the opportunity to get their children started in advancing their education.
