If re-elected, Conservatives will double annual matching grants for RESPs

Toronto, September 11 (CINEWS) Prime Minister Stephen Harper today announced that a re-elected Conservative government would double the annual matching grants provided to low- and middle-income families through Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs) to help hardworking families save for their children’s post-secondary education.
“Our government has consistently lowered taxes and enhanced benefits for Canadian families”, said the Prime Minister. “Leaving more money in the pockets of Canadian families allows them to pay their mortgage, prepare for retirement and save for their children’s post-secondary education.”
“I know that Canadian families work hard to save for their children’s post-secondary education in order to give them the best opportunities in life”, said the Prime Minister. “It’s a major investment in the future and our government has been there to lend a helping hand.”
Prime Minister Harper noted that Justin Trudeau and Mulcair’s NDP would raise taxes, reduce families’ take-home pay, and ultimately leave less money in Canadians’ pockets to save for important things like college or university.
“The choice is clear”, he concluded. “You have the Liberals and NDP who would raise taxes and leave families with less take-home pay, or our proven record of sound economic management and support for families who are saving for their children’s futures.”
