The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
The knowledge that a pathway exists is one small step in the right direction.
Building Education Opportunities in Canadian Child Welfare Services is a resource designed to allow social workers, parents and young people access to post secondary education financial planning information. Every child from every walk of life deserves the choice to learn.
Building Education Opportunities
What We Can Do For You
Continuing education after high school is often difficult for vulnerable young people because they don’t always have access to the needed resources.
CWLC is leading and developing Building Education Opportunities in Canadian Child Welfare Services (BEO), a program designed to provide social workers, parents and other care givers, foster/adoptive parents and young people with information on the benefits of federal and provincial/territorial government programs that can help young people continue their education.
Who is this site for?
Do you wonder what you will do after high school? Do you dream of attending university, college or a trade school? Do you wonder how you will manage to pay for your education? Sometimes you just don't know where or how to start saving because everything seems too expensive.

Parents and Caregivers
As a parent or caregiver you want to help children have a better future. Learning is a key to success in life. 70% of all new jobs depend on some form of education after high school. If you start planning and saving for a child’s education as soon as you can, then even small amounts set aside now can grow into thousands of dollars later on. On this site there is also information on how to access these government programs, how to encourage your child to complete high school and other resources.
Agencies and Social Workers
As a child and family services worker, you constantly face competing demands in meeting the basic needs of children receiving services. In the midst of the daily challenges it is not likely that children receiving services and their parents or caregivers will think about education after high school, nor will you. But you can change this! The Government of Canada provides financial aid and these programs are available to all children. You don’t have to be a financial expert. All you have to do is lead people to a financial institution to take it from there.
