On May 8, Assiniboine Credit Union, SEED Winnipeg and Service Canada provided the first-ever onsite Registered Educations Savings Plan (RESP) Day to help families in Winnipeg’s North End plan for their children’s future. And the day was a great success!
Building a Future
The Government of Canada, along with SEED Winnipeg, partnered to promote the benefits of having RESPs and Canada Learning Bonds while Assiniboine employees — Elvira Yusupova, Chris Alvarez and Aarti Sharma — provided advice and guidance in setting up accounts. Service Canada was onsite to provide Social Insurance Numbers for children who didn’t already have one.
By partnering together, we were able to help 19 families set up education savings plans for a total of 33 kids start to saving for post-secondary education!
The families that came out to the event were happy and very grateful for the assistance and service they received from SEED, Service Canada and Assiniboine. A big thank you to SEED for hosting this event and inviting us to be part of building a future for our kids.
