Résumé

There are almost three million children in Ontario. Most of them live with their families, who receive federal and provincial child benefits until the child reaches 18. Many of these families save for their child’s postsecondary education through Registered Education Savings Plans. The system of child-based benefits is complex and often difficult to navigate. The system of educationbased benefits is not well understood.
