Alberta Centennial Education Savings Plan

The Alberta Centennial Education Savings Plan, or ACES Plan, continues to be under review to ensure it is best meeting the needs of Albertans. 

While the program is under review, Albertans can still apply for ACES grants. All eligibility and application requirements remain the same.

Should the status of the ACES Plan change, updates will be posted on this website. Questions and inquiries can be directed  to 1-866-515-ACES(2237) or


The ACES Plan will contribute $500 into the Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) of every child born to Alberta residents in 2005 and later. As well, grants of $100 are available to children of Alberta residents when they turn 8, 11 and 14 in 2005 and later, provided that the children are attending school.

In order for beneficiaries to receive the best return on investment, grant applications should be made as soon as the child turns each of the ages noted above.
