I want to start
the online application
Applying for the Canada Learning Bond takes a few steps. We can make it easy by guiding you through it.
Opening an Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) account is the first step to receiving the Canada Learning Bond for your child. The SmartSAVER web tool makes it simple and easy for your family to open a no-cost, no mandatory contribution RESP with the financial institution of your choosing, and ensure your child receives the Canada Learning Bond and Canada Education Savings Grant (if eligible).
Are you ready?
I have decided to open an RESP account with my bank
The SmartSAVER web tool can help you open an account at RBC, BMO, CIBC, Scotiabank, TD, or Meridian. If you wish to open your RESP account with another bank or financial institution, you will need to contact them directly.
I have a Social Insurance Number for myself and my child
