You'll receive the Canadian Education Savings Grant (CESG) grant for the calendar year in which you make the contribution. If you don't contribute enough to receive the maximum $500 grant in a given year, the unused amount can be carried forward to future years. You can catch up on one year at a time - so each year, you can receive the $500 grant for that year plus up to $500 for a previous year.
