British Columbia Training & Education Savings Grant Information

Was your child born after 2006? The BC Government will contribute $1200.00 to eligible children through the B.C. Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG). For details and application deadlines.

Families in British Columbia are encouraged to start planning and saving early for their children’s post-secondary education or training programs. To help, the B.C. Government will contribute $1,200 to eligible children through the B.C. Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG).

There was an extension given to students born in 2006 to 2008, since that group of children turned six to nine years old during the year the program was launched. The parent or guardian plus the child must be residents of British Columbia.
