The Canadian Association of the Deaf – Association des Sourds du Canada hired 8 Local Advisors for the Registered Education Savings Project (RESP). This project funded by Human Resources Skills Development Canada aimed to educate Deaf Canadians and their families about the advantages of opening an RESP.

Local Advisors were responsible for providing awareness to financial institutions of the needs of Deaf clients, help families of Deaf children and Deaf parents of hearing children to access financial institutions, and to understand the benefits of education savings.
