This notice is of special interest to parents of children in grades 1, 2 and 3 (age 6 to 9).

Families in British Columbia are encouraged to start planning and saving early for their children’s post-secondary education or training programs. To help, the B.C. Government will contribute $1,200 to eligible children through the B.C. Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG).

Children may apply for the grant between their 6th birthday and the day before they turn 9. The parent or guardian plus the child must be residents of British Columbia at the time of application and have a valid Social Insurance Number.

You do NOT need to contribute anything to the RESP yourself!

Application is very easy! You can access this through your current financial advisor or, if you do not currently have a financial advisor, BVCS is pleased to recommend the following people and businesses who support BVCS:
