Canada Learning Bond (CLB) Participation Rate (percentage), Cumulative Number of Beneficiaries, and Cumulative Number of Eligible Children by Forward Sortation Area (FSA; i.e., the first three characters of the postal code) The CLB is available to children born on or after January 1, 2004, who are from low-income families or getting benefits under the Children’s Special Allowance Act. The CLB provides an initial payment of $500, and $100 for each year of eligibility up to age 15 (to a maximum of $2,000) and is retroactive.

The table consists of a combination of annual and quarterly data with quarterly reporting beginning with the period ending on September 30, 2013. The first column presents the number of children who have ever received the CLB, the second column presents the number of eligible children in the given Forward Sortation Area (sourced from the Canada Revenue Agency), and the third column presents the participation rate or the proportion of children receiving the CLB in relation to the eligible population.

I am working on the 2014 CLB uptake rate for the City of Burlington, Ontario. I would like to know what year is the the Forward Sortation Area (FSA) used for the 2014 CLB data? In the City of Burlington, there are four areas with the same postal code (L7R) for 2011 compared to only one area in 2007. Thanks

Hi Richard, thanks for your comment. I have forwarded this to the data owner for clarification. We will get back to you as soon as possible. Tasha, on behalf of the Open Government Team.

Hi Richard, Thank you for your interest in the dataset Canada Learning Bond Participation Rate by Forward Sortation Area (i.e. the first three characters of the postal codes) and Province and Territory, which includes data as of December 31, 2014. The Forward Sortation Area (FSA) data used for this Canada Learning Bond dataset came from the November 2014 release of Statistics Canada’s Postal CodeOM Conversion File (PCCF). In this file, the FSA of L7R maps to Burlington only. Please note that updates to this dataset along with other CESP datasets to include 2015 statistics are expected to be available through the Open Data Portal later this year. Thank you, Kent on behalf of the open government team
