Our mission is to enable a brighter future for everyone through access to education. We envision a future in which everyone is able to realize their full potential, to the benefit of the long-term prosperity of our nation and our people. To learn more, check out our magazine piece.
Why is this important?
Canada offers one of the world's most innovative social programs for education savings. Yet most education savings grants go unclaimed due to low awareness and complexity of the application process. As of 2018, there was $4 billion in unclaimed grants. The result is that millions of Canadian families do not have education savings — keeping them locked in cycles of disadvantage and poverty.
Education doesn't just help individual families — it's crucial for Canada's future. As the world economy shifts towards knowledge-based industries, the education gap represents one of the greatest threats to Canada’s long-term competitiveness and prosperity.
