Education changes the trajectory of a child’s life.
But for too many kids, education isn’t about ability. It’s about affordability.
The government helps families who save for their children’s education through the Canada Learning Bond.
But only 40% of eligible families apply.
Each year, billions of dollars are left unclaimed.
Over 2 million children have already been left behind.
Wealthsimple’s profits from managing your RESP go to Wealthsimple Foundation, and directly into the RESP accounts of families who are Canada Learning Bond-eligible.

The Canada Learning Bond (CLB) is money given from the Government of Canada to low-income families to help them save for their child’s post-secondary education. Families can claim anywhere from $500 to $2000, which is deposited directly into an RESP.
Families can claim CLB regardless of whether they have any education savings, or whether they’re receiving any other assistance from the government.
Wealthsimple RESPs have a 0.5% management fee—lower than most traditional advisors and banks. Plus, there’s no account minimum required for your RESP. You can start investing with just $1.
If your child receives the Canada Learning Bond, your RESP management fee is 0%.
