October 1st marks the start of RDSP (Registered Disability Savings Plan) Awareness Month! Please help us spread the word so that more people can learn about this incredible savings tool.

We have created a guide for community organizations and individuals to help raise awareness and get more people informed about the RDSP. We recognize that the ability to plan for your financial future gives people the opportunity to enjoy the present and look forward to the future. So for this month we’re asking how would the RDSP help you plan for your future so you can play in your present? How would you #PlanToPlay?

Here are some ways that you can help spread the word:

1. Personalize your social media with our banners and stickers below. For those that have an RDSP, invite your community to “Ask me about my RDSP” to share the impact it’s had on your life. 

Change your banner on Facebook and Twitter:
