Join Investing in Brighter Futures Surrey for the Canada Learning Bond Event, March 11th from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM on Zoom (broadcasted on Facebook). This event will help families learn how to request the Canada Learning Bond (CLB) and other government funding for children’s education after high school! Guest speakers will include the CLB Navigators at Fraser Region Aboriginal Friendship Centre Association (FRAFCA), Métis Nation BC (MNBC) and DIVERSEcity, Service Canada and Vancity.
The CLB provides up to $2,000 for eligible children and the BC Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG) provides $1,200 for children who are BC residents between the ages of 6 to 9 years old. These grants are for a child’s education after high school. There are currently over 26,000 eligible children in Surrey not yet accessing the CLB and 40% of BC families are missing out on the BCTESG!
Families can register here and be entered to win gift cards and other great prizes! A CLB Navigator will contact registrants prior to the event with a Zoom link and help families request the CLB.
We hope to see you at this virtual event! For any questions, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
