ESDC being unable to pay the CESG and the CLB to the trustee in respect of the RESP beneficiary.

the Canada Education Savings Act and the Income Tax Act: ESDC, the CRA, provincial governments where provincial

policy analysis, research, statistical and/or evaluation purposes. Information may also be disclosed to Statistics Canada
for research and statistical purposes. However, these additional uses will never result in an administrative decision
being made about you.

Adjusted income: The adjusted income of a beneficiary's individual primary caregiver is determined by adding together
the net income (line 236 of the income tax and benefit return) for the primary caregiver and his or her cohabiting spouse
or common-law partner (if applicable) and adjusting this family net income by deducting any universal child care benefit
(UCCB) and registered disability savings plan (RDSP) payments received and adding any UCCB and RDSP amounts
Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG):
Canada Learning Bond (CLB): $500 paid into an RESP for an eligible beneficiary born after December 31, 2003. An
eligible beneficiary could also receive $100 every year until he or she turns 15 years old for a maximum of $2,000.
Effective July 1, 2017, eligibility for the CLB is based, in part, on the number of qualified children and the adjusted
income of the individual primary caregiver, as outlined in the Canada Education Savings Act. For years prior to July 1,
2016, a beneficiary was eligible for the CLB if the individual primary caregiver was in receipt of the National Child
Benefit Supplement (NCBS) for the beneficiary. From July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2017, a beneficiary was eligible for the
CLB if the individual primary caregiver would have otherwise been in receipt of the NCBS for the beneficiary, had it
continued to be paid for that period.

of the child and the legal right to make decisions affecting the child's interests.

whose name appears on the CCB payments and notice. For more information, contact the CCB call centre at:
