A Registered Education Savings Plan, also known as an RESP, is a savings plan used by parents to help them save for their children's post-secondary education in Canada. With the rising costs associated with sending a child to college or university, an RESP can really help because the government provides grants* while the savings grow tax-deferred until withdrawn. When the student withdraws the funds for educational purposes, the withdrawals are taxed in the student’s hands, typically at a lower rate.
The sooner you start, the more you save. Contact one of our RESP dealing representatives near you today to find out how you could get started.
