How it works

  • A maximum of one Youth eSaver account per eligible child.
  • A child under 10 must have a parent or guardian open and operate the account as a signatory. The child cannot personally transact on the account.
  • Once the child turns 10 years of age, the child can remove a parent or guardian as a signatory, or remove their authority to obtain account information, at any time.
  • Parents or guardians can be given signatory access or third-party authority to obtain information on the account if required.
