The Lifelong Learning Plan allows you to pay for training or education with RRSP funds. Here are some of the key facts:

  • You can withdraw up to $10,000 per calendar year to finance full–time training or post–secondary education.
  • The student can be you or your spouse, but not your children.
  • If the student meets disability requirements, then the training/education can be on a part-time basis.
  • The total amount that can be withdrawn is $20,000 with withdrawals over a maximum of four consecutive years.
  • Amounts that are withdrawn are not subject to taxes on withdrawal.
  • At least 10% of the amount borrowed must be repaid each year, over a maximum period of 10 years.
