CAD-ASC hires 8 Local Advisors for the RESP Project

The Canadian Association of the Deaf – Association des Sourds du Canada is pleased to announce the hiring of 8 Local Advisors for the Registered Education Savings Project (RESP). This project funded by Human Resources Skills Development Canada aims to educate Deaf Canadians and their families about the advantages of opening an RESP.

Local Advisors received their training during the CAD-ASC Vision Conference held in Toronto, Ontario last November. Local Advisors are responsible for providing awareness to financial institutions of the needs of Deaf clients, helping families of Deaf children and Deaf parents of hearing children to access financial institutions, and to understand the benefits of education savings, and its process.

For more information about opening an RESP for your child, please contact a Local Advisors in your region.
