Hey ladies, did you guys get something in the mail from the government about your babies being Alberta Centennial babies?? I just got a letter and a certificate about it...and they said any babies born in Alberta in 2005 get $500 put towards a RESP fund for their school. =) I thought this was kinda neat!

I recieved ours this past week as well. I already had been given info on the RESP when I was still pregnant, by my OB/GYN's office. I was going to apply for it, but we wont be in Alberta when she is school age :(

Yeah, we found out from the bank when Tasia was first born...but they didn't really give us all the info on it! We didn't even know it had to do with 2005 babies in Alberta till we got this letter! lol!

Ya I heard something about that a few months ago.. I haven't recieved anything about it yet but I haven't filed for mason's birth certificate or anything yet either. I think it's a great thing because with ethan's RESP the first $500 we put in went to fees and stuff anyway. Hey, did you guys get your $400 surplus cheques or whatever they are called yet? I know mine is going to be late, but Trev hasn't gotten one yet....

Oh ya, Cora, I think as long as your child goes to school in Canada you can get it.. but I'm not 100% sure.

We haven't gotten ours yet either. I've been hearing alot of people b___hing about those...That's it's a waste of time and such. You know how the economy is here though, most people are rich and don't give a d__n LOL. It's good for families though. With just one kid we get 1200$ for our family. Pretty nice if you ask me.

We moved to sask 1 1/2 years ago and my husband works in Ab and we don't get any Raulf bucks it sucks.

 

Kristina - January 26

That does suck! =O Where in Alberta did you used to live?

Really LilMum? I was under the impression it was for Alberta only, I am going to have to double check that now...lol. Thanks ! And we havent received our prosperity bonus cheques either. I heard on the news a few times now that we are supposed to be getting them the beginning of this next week.
