This week, November 19-25, marks the fourth annual Education Savings Week in Canada. We celebrate this week to raise awareness about the importance of education savings for our children.
To kick things off, Mayor Nenshi has signed a proclamation declaring this week to be “Education Savings Week.” Our city recognizes the importance of saving early for post-secondary education and the government benefits available to parents who open RESPs.

Our Prime Minister also recognizes the importance of post-secondary education for children. On Monday, November 20, 2017 in honour of National Child Day, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a statement which included the following:
“Our children deserve the very best. We will continue to help build a better quality of life for future generations through investments that give young people better access to mental health services and help them afford post-secondary education and prepare for the jobs of today and tomorrow.”
