Access to the Canada Learning Bond, will be improved, allowing low-income families to get a head start on saving for postsecondary education. Families are able to get an early start in saving for postsecondary education, the benefits are education is more affordable, and reduces student debt loads upon graduation.

The 2017 budget proposes to provide more vulnerable youth with the supports they need to succeed in school, including tutoring, career mentoring and financial help, such as scholarships and internships through renewed support for Pathways to Education Canada, a charitable organization that helps youth in lower-income communities across Canada complete high school and successfully transition into postsecondary education and employment. The renewed funding is looking to provide $38 million over four years, starting in 2018-19.
