*** Income on Grants is based on 6% per annum for illustrative purposes. Return of net savings and EAPs is for illustrative purposes and presumes that the beneficiary will qualify to receive 3 EAPs in a 4-year program at the previous year's EAP amount at the desired number of units. Government grants plus growth are shown for illustrative purposes and assumes that the beneficiary has met the Federal Government's qualification criteria to receive basic Canada Education Savings Grant. Always consult the Prospectus prior to making an investment decision for further important details regarding all aspects of the Plan. Past performance does not guarantee or predict future results. Please consult the Plan's Prospectus for full fee disclosure.
**** Discretionary payments are not guaranteed. You should not count on receiving a discretionary payment. The Foundation decides if it will make a payment in any year and how much the payment will be. The Foundation may use available enhancement funds to supplement EAPs and fund return of enrolment fees. If it exercises its discretion to use funds in this manner, such supplemental funds will be applied in good faith and consistent with the Foundation's stated mandate of providing financial assistance to Beneficiaries in order to encourage and promote the advancement of higher education.
