Alberta Centennial Education Savings Plan

Alberta Centennial Education Savings Plan

The Alberta Centennial Education Savings Plan, or ACES Plan, is now closed. Applications are no longer being accepted.

Please note the following:

All ACES Plan grants that are in a child’s RESP will remain invested in the RESP.

After January 1, 2016, all awarded ACES Plan grants will be treated the same as accumulated income in an RESP.  This means that restrictions on transferability from one RESP provider to another are lifted on that date.  For more information, please contact your RESP provider.

If you applied for an ACES Plan grant to your RESP provider on or before July 31st, 2015, and did not receive it, you will need to contact your RESP provider.
