A re-elected Conservative government would provide more support to hardworking Canadian families saving for their children’s post-secondary education.
Our Conservative Government has consistently cut taxes and put more money back into the pockets of every Canadian family. This includes significant support to help with the costs of a child’s future education, including establishing the Canada Student Grants, reforming the Canada Student Loan Program and providing tax relief for scholarship funding and textbooks.
We will build on this record by doubling the federal grant provided to low- and middle-income families through Registered Education Savings Plans. This will ultimately provide as much as $2,200 more per student in matching government support.
In contrast to our proven record of support for families, Justin Trudeau and Mulcair’s NDP would raise taxes, reduce families’ take-home pay and ultimately leave less money in their pockets to save for important things like their children’s college or university education.
Only our Conservative party will continue to put money back in the pockets of every single Canadian family so that they can spend it on their priorities.
