RESP Sign-Up – November 2019

On November 21, our 5th RESP Sign-Up Event was a huge success!

More than 270 newcomer clients attended the RESP Sign-Up. Participants met with bank representatives, asked questions, and opened FREE Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) accounts to support their children’s future education. At this event, about 65 appointments were made to open RESP accounts!

Six different financial institutions (CIBC, TD, RBC, Scotiabank, First Calgary Financial and Servus Credit Union) were onsite to help newcomer clients open RESP accounts and provide other banking services.

Canada Revenue Agency and Money Mentors were in attendance to provide information and support. Service Canada was also onsite and issued over 10 Social Insurance Numbers.

RESP events are a part of our Financial Literacy programming. Missed the event? Interested in learning about the benefits of opening an RESP? Click here for more information!
